Beta installation manual calls for almost 20" of height above the static waterline on the vented loop. There is only 14" to the underside of the cockpit (including 1 1/4" sound-proofing).

Has anyone installed a Beta 38 (with the high rise exhaust) without a vented loop? Where is your vented loop installed? The Westerbeke had one just above the Vernalift muffler just under the cockpit. This height is just enough for the height requirement in my old Yanmar installation manual. Is Beta just more conservative? I'm thinking of installing the loop at 20" in the cockpit locker bulkhead and running the vent to one of the bilge hose exits.

I took my Beta 35 vented loop to the bottom of the cockpit floor, with drain hose to bilge. Been in some salty following seas, like +10ft, blowing 30 across the deck for two days. No problems so far. I also have high rise manifold and Vernalift muffler. The new exhaust hose, I ran it as high as I could get in the port side cockpit coming, mounting to the bulkhead. I had heard of one Beta back flooded.
