    Too much vibration and noise. I mounted it under the rear deck and it made the whole stern of the boat vibrate. It needs a mounting system that isolates the vibrations from the boat (rubber grommets or something) or improvements in the balance of the motor and fan. I'm trying to fix the probem by adding rubber mounts between the blower and the deck, but it's not very effective.

        This blower was an easy to install replacement for my old Attwood unit. It is much quieter that the Attwood ever was.

            Replaced the original blower in a 1983 open bow boat. Much quieter, and good air movement.

            • Easy To Install
            • Higher flow than original

                Comments about Detmar Water-Resistant 3" In-Line Blower:

                Replaced the original Attwood unit for my 99 Cobalt 200 with this unit. It is much quieter and more powerful. Easy installation as it fit the mount holes and only had to solder two wires. Done in 20 minutes. Recommend this for replacing noisy blowers as you only hear air moving and little to no motor/fan noise.

                    Hello Redd,

                    We are only provided the 170 cfm and not the RPM by the manufacturer. A speed control is not recommended to be used with the blower.

                    Thank you,
                    Steve
