Re: Dehumidifier in wet/rain PNW?
..... Is there a reason for closing up the boat at night? We just planned to leave the ports open if the weather is nice.
No reason not to leave ports open, esp if they're 'rain proof'... When we sailed in the Caribbean we left hatches and ports open for all the usual reasons.. but every night there was at least one 'chinese fire drill' of running about closing things up for a squall, and another one to open up again once it'd passed often only minutes later...
