This is why
This is why you MUST cover your boat in the snow belt!! True Blue and Dog are spot on.
The reason this happens is because the air in the cabin warms and the deck stays a constant 32F, unlike the cabin, because it has SNOW sitting directly on it!
With no snow on the deck the it can heat and cool at the same rate as the rest of the hull. this leads to NO condensation. Always cover a boat where snow is possible especially if you have a boat with a headliner!
If that owner did not care enough about the boat to cover it then how bad are the rest of the systems?
