Silica Gel will absorb moisture (weather it's enclosed or not). If you use enough of it (larger volumes) it will work in a large area. Also for smaller areas and being on your sail boat it might be best to get something that is moisture indicating (you can see color change when absorbed) and a product that you get extras in a zipper seal moisture barrier bag so you can keep them handy to use. Try something like this:
