there is a paint that has a warm touch additive to it. I think it has some microscopic beads or balls in it that give it a bit of insulation quality. Anything to insulate the bare hull in that berth will help keep it from getting wet. You could also use spray on foam. Probably a better bet would be to get some carpet and use spray on or brush on contact cement glue to glue it to the hull. Then get a fan that mounts on the wall and keep it circulating the air, and that would really make it nice and soft and dry in there without requiring shore power.

Thanks,,,,,,,,,,,,We are located in the CA Delta area at Owl Harbor, Isleton, CA. The first night we spent on the boat it rained 1 1/4" and the temperature was around 45 degrees. It was dripping everywhere. I'll sure try the ventilation strategy and pick a a de-humidifier as well. I'm also still considering covering the bare fiberglass in the berth, any suggestions on what would be an appropriate covering???

If someone is sleeping in the cabin, a port / vent must be open. Ventilation and air movement is crucial.
You can get de-humidifiers for when you are off the boat.

Hi, I'm a new owner of 1974 Islander 30 MK II. In the starboard stern berth I have quite a problem with condensation. It is just the inside of the hull with nothing on it. Is their some treatment I can do to keep condensation from forming there????? As a matter of fact what is the best strategy to deal with overall condensation. Any help or suggestions would be appreciated.
