Davis Instruments dehumidifier vs west marine air dryer with fan.

Recommended Posts

Has anyone used one or both of these? Do they work well? How do they compare? Is it worth it? We have wet carpets sometimes and it gets to smelling bad. We have a non breathable cover with air vents, but hopefully a dehumidifier will do the trick to keep it dry.

Not sure where you keep it but if you can add a or two ceiling fans above it in a few hours it will be dry as a bone.

Community dock in our neighborhood. Fans not an option. Good idea though.

I have both the large and small Davis air dryr. They will dry out wet carpet and will dry out and keep a boat dry under a cover. Great product

Good to hear, wonder if only the large will cover a v ride?

Large would cover it fine, I ended up with both off some amazon.com deal, but usually only use the larger one

Cool, wish the west marine one said how many cubic feet it covered.

I wonder if the Aqua Fusion mat is an option for your boat. If so that may do the trick.

I've been using the West Marine Air Dryer for years & it does a good job. Combined with a Dry-z-air thingy when I was in Seattle, where I kept the boat outside all year, I didn't have much of a moisture problem in the boat. Just be sure to get all your wet stuff out of the boat too.

I also have been using the above WM combined fan/htr with very good results here in Oahu on the wet side (Windward) of the island. Taylor-made vent in cover helps too, I think. The price is right for sure. Also, I don't remember how much pwr it uses, but I compared it to others at the time and it was lower.
