Tristar/Prostar Question...Repost

1989 Tristar 190:
Can anyone please confirm where the vent hose runs on both sides of the tristar?
I know the blower hose goes to the starboard side rear vent but I donít know where the hose goes from the starboard side, fwd or the 2, vents in the rear or where either vents run on the port side???

Lastly, where do all the vent hoses run from the heater core under the driverís helm route to?

Mine is a mess!!!

My old Tristar was ran like this: blower motor runs to starboard rear, port rear is just a short hose that terminates into the gunnel, port forward terminates into the bilge. starboard forward terminates into the bilge.
Can't comment on heater hoses, did not have one.

Thank you Spork!!
Sorry but whatís the gunnel?
And how did the Forward ports run to the bilge??
Looks like mine just ran to behind the rear seats.

basically the side ski locker it was a short hose
my fwd vent hoses ran down through the floorboards under the helm and port side then ended right below the floor.
basically they just supplied fresh outside air to the bilge/ engine compartment.

From Google:

A gunwale is the upper side of a ship or boat or the uppermost planks of a wooden vessel. Originally, the gunwale of a ship was the part of the deck where the guns were mounted and the term was spelled gonne wale, meaning gun plank. Gunwale is pronounced GUNnull.

Gunnel is an alternate spelling of gunwale, the definition of gunnel is also the upper side of a ship or boat or the uppermost planks of a wooden vessel. This spelling is gaining momentum as it is closer to how the word is pronounced, though many editors still frown upon the simplified spelling. Gunnel is also a small ocean fish.

Thanks guys!!!
I appreciate the clarification.
I understand the location but am confused at the routing of the vent hose from the gunnel to the bilge. Having something there for air flow is probably better than nothing
