Re: Tiny Dehumidifiers

One of the nice things about the little Peltier dehumidifiers is that they have a small enough footprint to place them on the galley counter. I have mine Velcro'ed to the shelf behind my galley counter, so it stays in place even when we're heeling.

Draining into the bilge should work also. Realize that it's generally much cooler under the sole than it is in the cabin, so water that deposits there will tend not to re-evaporate. Leave your cabin sole covers in place to minimize transfer of heat or vapor.

I choose not to drain into the bilge because my bilge is bone dry (outboard motor means no leaky packing box).
