Re: Condensation inside sailboat...
I'm planning something similar. We have a couple 12v coils previously used as a wind genny dump load. I figure I can use extra solar power to warm the cabin and run a fan too. IMHO, heat creates a temperature gradient between inside and outside that drives moisture away.
Computer fans work well: they're cheap, 12V and practically noiseless.
Installed in hard-to-reach areas at the bottom of lockers or bulkheads they make a huge difference to the air-flow through your boat.
A bad day on a boat beats a good day in the office
