Yeah, cabin boats run dehumes whilst laid-up and run the outlets over the sink. However, unless Pete can seal his cabin (slated door etc.), he'll be drying the Solent area.

i've got a couple of the ones where crystals absorb moisture and they have done a good job over the winter before. I'm hoping those and a decent airflow and being used every few weeks will keep the worse at bay. I'm also wiping everything with steriliisng fluid now to stop any balck spots appearing.....
