Beckson Clamshell Vents

March 2019 News

Whether ventilating an engine compartment, locker, cuddy or cabin, it's a good idea to keep the insects outside the boat. Beckson Marine's 3" C-7 and 4" C-8 Hard Clamshell Vents provide superior airflow and have all the features that have made them top sellers for years. And now, the 4" model is available with an integrated bug screen.

Hard Clamshell Vents are available in white and can be painted to color-match the boat. Made in the USA of durable molded plastic, they're UV-resistant for long life. They measure 5.5" W x 6.25" D x 2.5" H. They snap onto a deck-mounted base that has an included hose adapter. The C-7 model accepts 3" VT-3 hose. The C-8 version is for use with 4" VT-4 hose and available with the bug screen as model C-8-S.

The vents are easy to install on vertical and horizontal surfaces. Suggested retail price for the C-7 and C-8 Hard Clamshell Vents is $50.05; the C-8-S is $60.65.
