Boats live in a damp environment, and moisture inside the boat causes trouble when there is inadequate ventilation. Fiberglass boats are particularly a problem, as moisture in the warm daytime air may condense on the cooler hull inside at night. The problem is generally worse when boats are covered during the offseason, or not used on the water for long a time. Moisture allows mold and mildew to grow, producing unpleasant odors and black mildew spots, and ultimately causing fabrics and other interior boat materials to disintegrate.
Mold, mildew and the odor they create can be a problem even on boats that appear to be clean and well ventilated. This is because, apart from the visible areas in a boat’s cabin, there are many areas that offer the dark, moist environment that these fungi crave. Think under quarter berths, v-berths, hanging lockers, under cockpit seats, chain lockers, and a host of other hidden areas, many of which are barely accessible, if at all.
