I keep two 75w bulbs on at night, but that just to keep the engine from freezing... The fiberglass sweats like crazy, and unless it is covered by insulation, any bare portion eventually will look like the inside of the freezer....
What really helped to keep the moisture out of the boat was the clear shrink wrap... You should see the amount of water I would find on the inside of it...
With the wrap in place, the coldest spot for water to condense is the plastic and not a liner above my bunk...
Never thought of using dehumidifier, seems like a futile effort on a boat...
