Condensation.

Tempted to try this as fed up of being late for work each morning from having to wipe around each metal frame before I leave ?.  Is there a type of film that works best? Would anyone mind posting a link? :)

Sorry! I missed that...And thanks for putting it up! :)

Presumably with metal frames you stick the tape onto the frame when dry?

No problem. Copied from post 22!

The film attaches to double sided tape around the outer wood frame, enclosing the metal frame inside. This results in zero condensation on both glass and metal frames.

Tips for removing Condensate .

 

1. Water traps positioned under bed in bed room and under steps 

2. Bungs in portholes hell stop it forming there 

3. incontenance pads in bilges work wonders  especially the big chair ones suck up tons of condensate .

The BSS measures 'fixed' high and low level ventilation (so doesn't include windows).

Except on sea-going vessels the level of ventilation should not include windows.

 

8.9 Ventilation
8.9.1
Is the vessel provided with adequate fixed ventilation? 
Calculate the fixed ventilation requirements in accordance with
Appendix K.
Measure the total effective area of fixed ventilation.
Confirm that the total effective area of fixed ventilation (at least up to
the calculated fixed ventilation requirement) is divided as equally as
practicable between high and low level.
Fixed ventilation must be in
accordance with Appendix K.
NOTE – ventilators, doors, windows and hatches that can be closed without the use of tools must not be
included in the calculations as these are not considered fixed ventilation

NOTE – permanent and measurable gaps around doors and windows when the windows or doors are fully
closed can be taken into account as part of the fixed ventilation provision.
NOTE – in the event significant shortfalls in fixed ventilation are determined take the actions described in
Appendix A. A significant shortfall is:
where the total effective area of fixed ventilation is 50%, or less, of the calculated fixed ventilation
requirement; or,
 where the total effective area of fixed ventilation is less than the calculated fixed ventilation requirement
for appliances with continuous‐burning flames; or,
 where there is no high or no low‐level fixed ventilation.
8.9.2
Are warning notices displayed on sea‐going boats with closable ventilators? 
For vessels for which a fault is recorded at
8.9.1, identify seagoing boats with closable
ventilators.
Check for the presence of, and the wording on,
warning notices on or near to all non‐room
sealed fuel‐burning appliances.
On all seagoing boats with closable ventilators a warning
notice must displayed on or near all non‐room‐sealed fuel burning
appliances.
The warning notice must read: ‘WARNING – Open
ventilator(s) before use’, or equivalent wording.
NOTE – if a fault is recorded take the action described in Appendix A.
 

 

You can see an example of a 'sea-going warning notice behind the kettle.

I only use film on my 5 'bus' windows, leaving 4 opening portholes, hopper bathroom and sliding galley windows which provide more than enough additional ventilation when required (eg showers, cooking) although are closed most of the time in winter. I've even left the film on over a couple of summers without overheating.

What about portholes?

We're all portholes and it works fine. The tape will mould around well enough to take the film, it's a bit challenging but do-able.
