I have a wooden deck. open on all sides and covered with a v groove
tin roof. When the weather is damp I get drops of water forming on the
underside of the roof and then dropping on the deck furniture. What
causes this and how can I prevent it? Thanks for any reply

Heating the roof would stop it. Applying an insulating layer of
foam, cork, or rubber might stop it. Spraying it
with anti-fogging oil or rubbing it down with soap or wax
might help a little.
Tilting the roof enough so that the condensation can run along the low
points to drip off in a less objectionable place would probably work,
but generally I'd say just live with it. Stuff that's outside
needs to be able to take a little water.
But to OP note if it's not a direct application there's at least a
reasonable likelihood in a totally unheated area of simply having
condesation above the insulation which is potentially worse in the
long run than the present problem -- at least now it will dry up when
the weather warms up/dries out.
