Hi, any idea where to find the 4.5 x 8.5 (approx) louvered rear hull vents ?

Hi Eric,

I have a 44 CPMY too and I find it very difficult to fine parts especially since Gordon Graham shut down his Resources International website.  However, I have experimented with 3D printing them.  Recently I needed to replace a small section of my sunroof rain gutter so I 3D printed it using the Xometry service below.  It was actually kind of fun and not too expensive.  They can make things out of many materials.  Here's some links to get you started in case you want to give it a try.
