Re: boats and davits
Cowl vents would be fantastic. Few things are more tedious than making a batch out of heated styrene rod, then finding pairs with the same shape. Boats also, although WTJ also 3-D prints a set, and GHQ offers superb cast boats from their 1:1200 Napoleonic ship kits that can be ordered as parts. They could probably use the business after the disruption of their manufacturing facility in downtown Minneapolis.
Not so sanguine about davits, though, they might be a bit fragile. A selection of styles is available in 1/700 scale photo etch brass and steel, where the smallest ones are the right size for cruisers and larger vessels.
Masters of Military does a very nice set of "rowing" lifeboats on Shapeways. Davits from different nations would be nice, motorized launches and pinances would be nice, too.
If you're going to go here, generic boats and davits. I truly suck at davits.
