Ask for Cheryl they keep SHETLAND graphics

Hi Bruce.

For your decals/transfers/stickers, try www.naughtygull.co.uk, they list a number of Shetland decals that they produce.

To help reduce condensation, we use the refillable crystal bath/moisture trap devices that absorb moisture over a period of time. We do not have a constant power supply on our mooring so can't use an elecctric greenhouse type heater or electric dehumidifier some owners use.

We use a combination of a dehumidifying bath from Unibond that uses a round block to absorb moisture, and Kilrock moisture trap. They work well for us, it is suprising how much fluid they colect over a month.

This method is successful in the cabin, but still occasionally have some light condensation in the cockpit. We may be a bit overkill but on our 27' Shetland we have four of the moisture traps in the cabin and it normally takes around three weeks to see moisture in the bath from refilling them or putting them in for the first time.

We also leave cupboard doors open and seat cushions off to help air circulate.

Hope that helps.

Simon.

Hi,

Solar powered vents with rechargeable batteries make a huge difference, as does covering any exposed grp with fabric or carpet.
