Looking for a dryer boat - desiccant?

Hi all, for a boat with the Nicro solar vents running, is there much point to either a desiccant or a powered dehumidifier? It seems the vents are drawing moist air through the boat anyhow.

I installed 1 vent on the forward hatch and two aft at the rear of the cabin. It still gets stuffy, which I guess is normal, but papers left inside get moist. Is there an effective way to keep the air dryer?

I have shore power available but my boat is not wired for 110VAC, yet.
