My Holland 25 'Impala' is now safely parked at the Port Huon marina south of Hobart. This area experiences many very cold and foggy mornings at this time of year, and I'm noticing that I've got a condensation problem below decks - there's heaps of it on everything. Aside from wiping it off with a towel, I'm not sure what to do about it. There are two small air vents that let air in, but I'm wondering if, on foggy mornings, the moist fog air is flowing into the boat, and this is compunding the problem. What do you think? - and do you have any tips for dealing with condensation? Cheers.
I've got a better idea! For the amount of moisture, a packet of absorber would not be enough. I've found 12V mini De-humidifier in web. www.dampsolutions.com.au/catalog/index.php I have used normal de-humidifier for a very damp and moldy house I used to live, and it worked well.

I used to sell Solar powered fan vents and they make a difference, just keeping air moving through the yacht even only dull days (not full overcast though). These are sold on Ebay (search for "solar exhaust fan", get one with switched rechargable battery to extend time) for about $79 plus postage.
However, dehumidifier sounds like even better for Hobart during Winter.
