We placed the unit in the head for now. It is a bit larger than we thought. We set the humidity level to 40. It is recommended for the room humidity to be between 30-50. We left it on over night and we used the heater. We got up as usual for work only this time the boat was dry!
Sometimes we up it to 60-70 as we like some moisture and the boat still stays dry.
We let this run at night to keep the boat from getting too wet. We use an electric heater with a thermastat to keep the boat from being too cold at night.
The boat still will get chilly but not real cold.
This hatch is over the bed. When this Sky Shade is closed it still stays mostly dry.
This one is in our head and is closed but stays dray any way.
Our port holes and windows stay dray and the boat never gets stuffy as the air moves about.
On our 36' sail boat we alwasy have the fan on low when we have the unit runing. The fan has three settings. Unless we are cooking spaghetti or something with bowling water.
For us it has been well worth it.
