Comments:  
THE INBOARD ENGINE COMPARTMENT NATURAL VENTILATION SYSTEM EXHAUST OPENINGS WERE NOT OF SUFFICIENT SIZE. WITH A NET COMPARTMENT VOLUME OF 96 CU. FT. THE NATURAL VENTILATION SYSTEM SUPPLY AND EXHAUST OPEN AREA MUST BE AT LEAST 14.8 SQ. IN. EACH. THREE INCH EXHAUST DUCTS WERE INSTALLED ON THE PORT AND STARBOARD SIDES WHICH WOULD GIVE AN AGGREGATE AREA OF 14.2 SQ. IN. BUT THE DECORATIVE GRILLS ON THE EXHAUST OPENINGS REDUCED THE OPEN AREA TO A TOTAL OF ONLY 8.0 SQ. IN. THE NATURAL SUPPLY VENTILATION WAS SATISFACTORY. THE FUEL SYSTEM HAD NOT BEEN PRESSURE TESTED. 10/25/06 REC'D DOCUMENTATION (DNR AND CUR) INDICATING THAT PARTS AND INSTRUCTIONS HAVE BEEN SENT TO PARTIES INVOLVED OF VENTALATION ISSUE AND PROFILE HAS AGREED TO REIMBURSE PARTIES FOR LABOR.
