Re: Mildew in the Cabin
One winter storage cheap solution is kitty litter in buckets or pans (the more surface area the better) in all the cabins. Even sealed up the boat can start the season with no mildew to cleanup. We also remove all fabrics, cushions, etc.
But you may be driving for solutions that work while commissioned, we haven't had much problem with that up here.
Just driving for ideas worth testing side-by-side, and many have been offered. Good.
Kitty litter works by buffering the humidity and keeping it stable. We tested the silica gel type and found it to be the most economical product of it's type. An hour in the oven at 250F gets it ready for re-use, year after year.
