I say that because being below decks if she gets swamped they'll need to be in a waterproof box.

Probably a stupid question but I ask plenty of them !
Yes there will be a breather from the box through the side of the console

The battery compartment is under the console as an integral part of the boat

Goretex battery vents.

Have just looked at an RTK606 built by VT Halmatic and they fit goretex battery vents to the battery enclosure. These will pass hydrogen but not water.

Hey presto - a non-return battery vent! Available from RS apparently and not expensive.

Looks like a nice console - especially the big wheel!!

What engine are you going to put on it, and do you get problems with the radio speaker so close to the compass?
