Humidity cure

Post by wetbuoy » Fri Jul 26, 2013 9:50 am

Just in case anyone is having humidity troubles, I have a cheap cure. Working for the City of Ottawa in the winter we use bags of calcium chloride to open frozen drains. It's the same stuff sold at marinas in little bags for big prices. Get a big bag from an auto parts store and spread no more than 1" in a high sided pan; cat litter pans are perfect. Get the max surface area. Close the boat up and cook at ~100+ degrees for a couple of days. You will have a pan of 3" liquid (salt water) and zero humidity. it will still be hot but DRY. Get rid of the liquid asap since it is a magnet for spilling it every time.
