Fighting the ‘Perfect Storm

TAKU Hatch Fan $160

What’s more dangerous — a rainstorm or excess cabin humidity? Well, for you, probably the rainstorm, but for your boat, the answer is most definitely the latter. No matter where you dock, the differential between air and water temperature is constantly changing, which can combine to create condensation — a vicious enemy of interior wood surfaces. One way to battle mold, mildew and must is with a hatch fan. The TAKU hatch fan is unique in that it installs via suction cups, meaning no drilling or fasteners. It pushes musty damp air out and pulls fresh air in.
