These are not conflicting ideas, they are just two different solutions. Both work. But you've got the airflow concept wrong. It is not about "equalizing" anything, it is about moving enough fresh air through the boat to ABSORB the moisture and move it out. Pretty much the same way that chemical absorbers work, except the "chemical" here is the (usually) drier outside air.

Use whichever fits your budget and convenience.

akin_alan is on a distinguished road
I just bought a 30' Grampian 1974 model. Great boat, has been well taken care of. I have developed a morning cough however within the past few weeks of owning it and sleeping on it often. Does this sound like a mildew problem. The boat doesn't smell at all. The bilge has some dirty water in it that I found recently but its down low and the inside seems quite dry. Also someone might tell me how to start a new post on the Sailnet Forum?

Just go to the forum you want (Click on 'forums' and then the topic of interest). To start a new thread (I assume that's what you really meant) - at the top left of all the listed threads is a "new thread" button. Click it and you're away!
