Keeping

Keeping your bilge dry will go a LONG way towards a less humid interior. Desiccant won't do beans with a large volume. Sure it works in drawers and somewhat in a closed hanging locker but with 80-90% humidity it won't really touch it. You could put 10 boxes of kitty litter (basically what the expensive marine store desiccants are) in your boat and still have it damp.

Get the bilge dry and you'll see an improvement.
