If you a distinct diesel odor in your cabin, chances are you have a fuel
leak and no amount of ventilation will make it go away. You have to
address the cause.
Last September, after a sail, my wife went below and she smelled
diesel. Next day, I checked all the hoses, connections, etc. Everything
appeared O.K. however, there was now a hint of diesel in the bilge.....I
know I have a leak somewhere. it turned out to be a few corrosion spots
on the bottom of the 33 year old aluminum tank where the tank sits on
the wooden platform. I removed the tank and had a machine shop weld a
new aluminum bottom in the tank.
And I have a Nicro solar vent on my forward hatch, however, no amount of
ventilation in the boat will mask the smell of diesel.
