Dorade Vents

    I have two stainless steel dorade vents with threaded deck fittings that I'd like to sell. We removed them from Questia to free up the cabin top when we removed the stay-sail boom. I've attached a picture below.  Both are in really nice condition and, with a quick polish, will look great on any boat.

    Not sure what to ask for them but, if you're interested, write me back and we'll make a deal.

    Hi Don,

    I may be interested. What size are they?

    When threaded into the deck fitting the dorade stands 12” tall. The large opening is 8.5” in diameter. The small opening into the deck fitting is 4” in diameter.

    There wasn’t a dorade box on the deck?

    Hello All:

    I posted these dorade vents for sale back in October of 2018 and there was some interest but they never sold.  I'd still like to sell them if anyone is interested.

    Both vents are in great shape and I have the threaded rings that secure them to the dorade box or the deck. I was asked about weather I had the threaded caps  --  If you remove the vent you can seal the opening with the threaded cap --  I don't have the caps but I went to  Minney's marine surplus and found a dozen that fit perfect for about $7 each, so they are available.

    I'd like to see these vents go back on someone's W32. If you're interested let's talk.  I'm thinking about $150 for the pair.

    Thanks, Don

    Hi Don,

    I would like to buy the 2 dorade vents.

    Do you live near Mimies where you could possibly pick up some caps for me.

    Thank you,

    Hello George,

    Thanks for your interest. I drive past Minney's on the way to my boat so no problem.

    I went by there about a week ago and there was a sign out front saying they were closed for remodeling - I'll check again on Monday or Tuesday and let you know.

    My phone number is on my WOA profile page if you want to give me a call to discuss shipping etc.

    Hello George,

    Sorry I must have missed your call. I went by Minnie's yesterday and they are remodeling  -  sign says will reopen January 2021. 

    I'll try to give you a call tomorrow morning and not take up more forum time on this item.
