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.
