No picutres yet, but Bob has been glassing in a flox flange below the flapper valve that seals off of the overboard hot air dump duct. This never quite sealed right, but we didn’t consider it a big deal when we had a ton of NACA air to supply. Now that we’ll only have bilge fan reciruclating air pressure, we need to make it count. We’re also making duct cover to replace the piece that used to come from the nose NACA that will close off the duct and give us a place to connect the bilge fan hose This will still allow us to dump hot air overboard or bring it to the cabin using the existing control and the fan to move the air.
