Dehumidifier - Wooden Boat

A few people have suggested that I should install a dehumidifier on my boat and, I agree there is some moisture BUT it is a wooden boat (no fibreglass or epoxy coat).

Logic suggests that adding a dehumidifier to the mix would reduce the swelling in the boards and thus open up the seams or am I just overestimating the power of a dehumidifier?

Not really sure which way to go here so any advice appreciated.
