Re: Dehumidifier in wet/rain PNW?

I have lived aboard in Alaska and the sound for many years. I learned a few things. First you need good air circulation. Don't batten the boat down tight. If you cook with propane increase the circulation while doing so as propane produces h2o. I tried just about every thing and settled on the dryer units. Very low electric use. They circulate the air via convection produce dry warmth,an amazing amount. They are inexpensive and last a long time. Also no elements. i ha e to leave for periods and feel very comfortable with leaving them on. again if your circulation in the boat is good you will be surprised at how dry things will stay. Also bunk mate,placed under the cushions will help with air circulation and keep cushions dry,thus no melded. Hope this helps
