I got the premier brand one. 3 reasons over lg. Either will do, both have house fittings to drain to bilge.
1 has a decent handle
2I like that air goes in the front and out the top.
3 double the warranty length.

Rental was the same as buying after a week or two. Never understood adding heat and just moving air around in a sealed boat.

In my home and garage I have had 4 or 5 dehumidifiers and I think the warranty is a big issue. It seems to me that the new electronically controlled units are not nearly as reliable. I had an old one that seemed to be work for ever. The newer ones seem to have controllers go out. If I were to buy another one, I would get the extended warranty as I have not seen a new style last more than a year or two. I like the idea of Sears as they actually have service centers locally.
