Air & Moisture Filter

Hi There, my yacht gets condensation inside the hull, Does anybody know of a solar powered fan that can also act as a moisture filter to remove the condensation. Thanks

Re: Air & Moisture Filter

Ventilation is key. Can't really remove moisture unless you are running an air conditioner.

Re: Air & Moisture Filter



My dorade vents work great



My solar vent is pretty useless IMHP

BUT for example each of my hatch boards also has a SS vent and combined with the dorade box's allow air flow through any time there is a hint of breeze

If a dirty bottom slows you down what do you think it does to your boat

Re: Air & Moisture Filter

There is no "moisture filter" to stop condensation in a boat. Only small ones to stop condensation in fuel vent lines.

You get a dehumidifier to keep a boat dry, and that's either a big bucket of Damp Rid, or an electric heating rod (GoldenRod) or air-conditioning type dehumidifier. Both requiring shore power.

Other than that, the simple air flow from a couple of adequate solar vents often will stop or reduce condensation. But no, there's no magic "moisture filter" on any of those.
