Storage of sport equipment in tropics during offseason

Hello,

I am in the process of buying a catamaran for Martinique for use in the winter but will be stored in a marina during the summer (June - Nov).

I would like to leave sports equipment, like fishing, diving & kite gear in the ventilated space under the bunks. I will leave the matresses stored vertically and there are large air circulation holes.

Any recommendations on if this is a good idea?

Also do you recommend a dehumidifier to be installed to remove moisture?

Thanks in advance for any iput.

Harold

If you’ve got power available to the boat while in storage, a dehumidifier is a life changing investment. Keeping the internal humidity at or below 50% makes everything last longer and smell better.
