Especially ventilate above the cooker and in the shower.

Do make sure that the bilges are dry though. And fix any leaky windows etc.

Otherwise you will have to spend tons of carbon running dehumidifiers. And if you do dehumidify, don't ventilate.

I have never personally owned one in a boat, but woodburners are fantastic aboard, creating vast amounts of dry heat and drawing fresh air in to keep things sweet. I do have a Webasto and these are brilliant and civilised, but much more complex as previously mentioned.
Don’t forget the hair shirt to keep warm.
