All they are is Indicating silica gel. you can find it at mcmaster-carr for $14.38 a lb with out the fancy metal mesh container. We tried the h2outs and were not impressed. They just dont absorb that much in real life.

Re: End boat condensation once and for all

Are you on shore power? If so go and buy a dehumidifier. I doubt the canisters are going to absorb the volume of humidity that really exists. A dehumidifier would fill the volume of those canisters inside of a day or two. I have lots of gadgets on my fancy pants new boat, but the feature I cherish most is the dehumidifier mode on my reverse cycle AC units. I didn't even know the feature existed until the orientation. Now having experienced it I would never own a boat without it.

Re: End boat condensation once and for all

If one is living aboard, there are constant introductions of humid air into the cabin. Cooking, breathing, entering and exiting, and a wet dog!! I just can't believe that a static chemical desiccant is ever going to keep up. They barely work when there is no air exchange or reintroduction of new moisture.

Re: End boat condensation once and for all

i have found no condensation when the temps do not fluctuate much.... is perfect.
i also found that in small boats, if you do not use a tarp to deflect the rain and keep a hatch open, you soak to death.-or drown in condensation.
mold grows in a non ventilated environment.
