    Dealing with humidity in the cabin

    keeping the 275 in Central Florida over this winter. I’d like to hear methods for keeping cabin humidity under control in this environment. Fan? Damp Rid containers? Can’t really leave deck hatch cracked for fear of rain getting in. Anything else that’s effective? Thanks

    I live in fl also and use 1 generic damp rid in the cabin and 1 in the head area. I buy them for $1 a piece from dollar tree and they work great even in the summer. Change out every few weeks when depleted.

        What about dumping the pan periodically. I don’t go to the boat everyday.

          Mine drains into the sink. Other models have a pump and a hose.

          Mine stays on all the time when I’m not on the boat

            Good setup. I’ll try to find one that size which I can set on the countertop. Thanks

                Thanks, Tally. Admiral is a Prime member so we may just go that way. Cheap enough, for sure.

                  A dehumidifier with overboard drain is the way to go. Some small low power fans to help move the air around as well helps a lot. Keep it from getting damp and you won't have any mold problems.
