Range Exhaust Blower

Needed to add a cook top exhaust blower without tapping into the cabinet space above. Off the shelf versions would not work due to dimensions and location of exhaust ports so I came up with this.

Interesting. What did you use for a fan and how well does the setup work?

I used a 3" Attwood bilge blower. It does a respectable job. Certainly not as good as the unit at home working through 8" ducts but it moves quite a bit of air and, except for a screw head I did not intrude on the cabinet above. I can tell you that using smothering candles at pan level it worked very well to evacuate the smoke. I have not been able to cook anything since the boat is on the hard.

Technical specifications state that "In system" the blower is rated at 90 cfm. However, with some of the additional installation restrictions it's actually moving less than that but still, it is a welcome addition over the previous passive flow towards the companion way on the other end of the saloon.
