Re: Winter Moisture Control

Forgot to mention that a major area of heat loss is through the cabin sole. The cold water is a great conductor of heat out of the hull. I bought some cheap, rubber back carpet runners at KMart and cut to fit the main cabin sole. And some smaller runners for the sole leading to the forepeak. Made a big difference. This year I am about to do same but this time will first put down a layer of thin blue foam. 1/4"? That with carpet over it will do even better.
