Range hood options w/o upper storage bin

I have decided to permanently remove the storage bin/cabinet above the galley due to head clearances: my wife and I are 6'+ tall. Two problems: The galley light: this should be easy to solve by find a suitable fixture that I can mount directly to the interior wall/ceiling panel where the electrical wires exit the skin. The range hood is however an issue. I saw a picture of an interior where the owner fabricated a custom fan that mounted to the interior skin right at the penetration hole. I think my metal fabrication skills are not to that level, so I am looking for off the shelf ideas? Anyone?

You might be able to figure something out using stove pipe and a small fan & motor. If pipe doesn't come in the right size, a strip of aluminum could be formed into a cylinder which is pop riveted to hold it together. Use the original motor and attachment for the fan and attach 'legs' that you can use to rivet the thing to the wall. You might also cut the existing hood up to separate the cylinder, motor, and fan from the rest of it, attach the cylinder to the wall. (Hate that last idea because it was expensive to have a replacement hood made for my Caravel.)
