I would say that at the very least you need a humidity guage that lives in the case with the guitar and NEVER let the guitars sit around out of the case. It's not the conditions that affect the wood as much as the rapid change in conditions and that is what a good case does, it lessens the rapidity of the change in conditions. A guage will tell you whether you need a dessicant or a humidifier and the you can go from there. FWIW, when I lived aboard, my 1968 Gibson Southern Jumbo lived at my Dad's house, just not worth the risk. My Martins don't even know I own a boat. YMMV
