Motoring along this morning in the rain our windscreen kept misting up, it was raining too hard to have the canopy down.

It really helps to be able to see outside

How do we keep the mist off the inside of the screen, would an electric demister work and if so does anyone know where to get one suitable for a boat.

I guess with the engine running the power draw would be OK if the demister was electric.

I did have a little 12volt automative fan demister but they do use a lot of juice. I also knew of someone who fitted a car heater from an early Landrover / Morris Minor (simple matrix and fan)which he hooked into the sealed cooling system.  Only worked whilst under way but with a duct directed at the screen worked quite well.  Tended to blow out spiders when first started if that worries you Evil Grin

Bill,

thanks for that, I had thought of using a ex car heater but the duct work would be tricky, although I may try one later for heating the cockpit to extend the season, we already have a diesel heater for the cabin.

I think I will try an electric heater, hopefully it wont need to be on for long and then only when the engine is running, it will probably draw 15A I guess
