and in my case, (and probably all the other people who have my exact
same boat) there are no vents at the bottom or directing things to the
bottom.) anyone with a Johnson Deluxe wanna chime in? my
cowling is a big bubble of fiberglass that doesn't touch the boat
sides. i have noticed the vents on the top back rails on other
boats the past couple days. pretty common. nothing on mine.
makes me a little nervous. will i screw up anything to put a pair of
the standard fin vents along the bottoms sides?
