Same with my cotton robe.

The cushions in the cabin do not feel damp. They are polyester. The sheets are cotton. I'm wondering what to do about this. Would microfiber sheets be better?

Put some of this hyperbent under your mattress and get some of this damprid for here and there around the boat and I bet that'll solve both your problems

Whatever else you decide, do yourself a favour and get a hygrometer. A simple analog one is only $1 on eBay.

Fancy digital models can be had from $5.

No need for guesswork, and you'll be able to measure precisely the impact of various changes and ideas.

Re: That damp feeling...

There's a new product out that you assemble your own coil mattress unit from modular pieces to any shape. ....allowing lots of air space. It's called: Modular Froli Sleep Systems by Nickle Atlantic, LLC
