Boat's self bailing.

Left the boat a few weekends ago with the scupper caps in. Rained probably half a foot. Got water under there and got about 98% of it out.

The final 2% IRKS me to no end.

All I have is one four inch PVC pipe where my cables go through the deck under the console...and a ten inch hatch at the stern.

I tried sponging out the water best I could but I really want to introduce heat under there to really dry it out good....any ideas, fellow DEBF'ers??

Go to Christmas tree shop/target/walmart and get a few of those moisture eaters. They are like a small dehumidifier that has a resin (silica gel) and a place to suck the water up into the container. Place a few of those under there and it should suck up your moisture.

Look at this on ebay:
Damp RID Excess Moisture Absorber Absorbant 10 5 oz Air Dehumidfier FG01K | eBay
