Where does the rain go that gets down the mast. That seems to be the most likely way for moisture to get in a boat. Get rid of that water and you'll have a dry boat. Ditto for any deck leaks, which are a problem in themselves.

After ventilations, the smallest of heaters can keep humidity away. Do you have excess solar or wind power (a dump load) that you can put toward a small heater and a fan? (Or even better, a duhimidifier.)


Great minds discuss ideas;
Average minds discuss events;
Small minds discuss people.
The best minds discuss sailing (and a little bit of politics). I don't know why. It's a mystery!
