I have lost the Martec mini-vents that were installed on the cabin roof, and found out from Martec that they are no longer made, with none remaining in stock. They have a much larger vent, also being discontinued but still available as of 3 weeks ago, but they are very large (much higher). Martec claims that there are no vents from any manufacturer that will fit the Martec fixtures installed on the deck.
Does anyone know of a work-around, or some way to maintain ventilation without replacing the deck fixtures?

If you are talking about the soft rubber vents that stick up in front of the hatch I bought one at West Marine for about $30.00.

I am not sure of the name brand that I bought but if fit perfectly.

Nicro 3" vents fit nicely. My vent caps detached from the adapter, which had to be carefully pried from the vent. The 3" cowl vent dropped in and was a perfect fit, leaving a small gap between the cowl and inner diameter of the vent ring.
