RE: "Sweating" steel boat

"It may be a good idea not to close it up tight."

That's a valid point if the boat is not left too long. If the point is to preserve the fittings and fixtures then a full DH is the best long or longer term solution.

Ventilation will keep things what*our senses*interpret as "fresh" which is why we open all the windows and let the sunshine in when we "open" a house.**But for preservation and protection, nothing beats hermetically sealed and dehydrated.
