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.

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.
