Alan &/or Jim,

How many canisters do you use for the winter in your boats?  You both have 35' boats.  Looked at an RV site and one reviewer said he used 4 canisters in a 37' RV.  More volume than a boat and do not know where he was located.

Thanks,
Brian

  I suspect you have mildew, rather than mold.  Mix bleach with water.  I think the ratio is one cup of bleach to one gallon of water. Just wet a sponge wipe the area that has the mildew. After about fifteen minutes, rinse off with plain water and wipe dry. If the wood is unfinished (not varnished), refinish the wood with teak oil after it dries.  Keep air circulating through the boat to prevent the mildew from coming back. Another thing you can use is Dry Z Air. It's a canister in which you dump a bag of crystals that remove moisture from the air.  the canister is about six dollars, and a bag of crystals is about a dollar.  One or two bags should last you all winter.Check back regularly to dump the liquid which will accumulate.
