Re: Dehumidifier in wet/rain PNW?

I wonder if one of those solar powered vents might help with the moisture problem. With the heat going at night if you had a small ventilating fan going to exhaust the warm, moist air it might help (you could shut if off during the day or when it's really cold out). We don't live aboard but our boat stays dry without a dehumidifier (I turn the fan off in the vent for winter but we have three open dorade vents always open).
