Thank you so much for that, my wife has a super sniffer and things like bleach and other smells impact her for days. You just saved me a boat project and an unhappy wife!

I want to issue a small and maybe insignificant warning about venting the chain locker inside the boat.

Judy and I were aboard someone else's SM several years ago who was venting his chain locker into the boat. Judy is very sensitive to respiratory issues. She had a serious reaction to the mold that was being vented out of the chain locker and into the boat. I know this is fairly rare, but if you or someone aboard has ever had a reaction to airborne mold spores, please do not do this. It took a long time to clear this up.

Another option for keeping the chain locker vented - louvered cover. Switch back to original solid one when passage making.
