Re: Tiny Dehumidifiers
60 to 70 watts!! I wonder if day/night solar vent in conjunction with just heating the interior a bit (thus lowering the relative humidity) with a 60W bulb (or small boat heater) would be as effective. You net power use would be the same and it would be a whole lot simpler.
Many marinas ban the use of unattended heaters. I know mine does. Plus, heat could make mildew worse (unless it burns your boat down first
Installing a device that condenses the water and dumps it in your galley sink is about a simple as it gest. I'm not sure that your suggestion of evaporating water into the air is any simpler or more effective.
