    New to group, looks to be a great forum! Bought a 1990 44 OY two years ago and slowly upgrading and replacing items as they go. My starboard blower exhaust fan works but it is so freakin loud and I assume it is going to die soon so I would like to replace this winter, however ,I don't think there is easy access to it? It sounds like it is behind the cupboard under the sink as I can feel it vibrating the area. My fear is I may have to cut a hole in the cabinet somehow for access? Same as if I have to replace the starboard head wast lines as they are under/behind that kitchen area as well and I just had some of my cabinets redone recently. I swapped the garbage disposal for a pull out trash, and got rid of the stove and cook top for more cabinet and counter space. I didn't do the work on the cabinets so I never got to ask or see what was behind them, however ,the work that was done my not have exposed what I needed to see anyway. Any other 44's owners out there that may have a clue on this issue? Not sure if the 46's have a similar lay out or not.

    My 46 has a access door cut inside the cabinet base under the sink waste hose

    Matt do you still have the old Seaward/Princess electric range you took out? Or is it gone.

    I have an 89 44ss, both master and guest head exhaust fans are very loud. Have been since I have owned her 2012.

    Sorry, It was trashed. I got rid of it and did not replace with any stove or cook top as my wife wanted the counter space and uses an electric griddle if need be.
