    A question please, I need to get stick welding fumes out of my barge through a 2' x 1' hatch on deck, what kind of fan should I be looking for? Needs to be vaguely waterproof ideally. The hatch is right over my bench so no hood or ducting needed I reckon. Thanks
    I will post a piccy in a minute.

    12v fan from a car radiator and a 12v leisure battery. Moves VAST amounts of air and you might even find one fitted to a shroud the same size as that hatch. Fully 'waterproof' too.

    My pleasure. I have one at the end of my shed. When running I struggle to open the door. Must get around to increasing the size of the louvred hole above the door!
