Re: Kanberra gel

I've read every post on this thread with interest. We don't have a lot of boat smell, but when I turn on an a/c unit, there is a musty smell for a few minutes.
There is no access to the bilges under the salon so we have no idea if there is mold.
As full time liveaboard voyagers, our boat is open and well ventilated pretty much all the time, at anchor.
From what I've gathered the KG works well in a closed environment, but do those of you who are happy with the KB think it work for us (I've got 3 hatches and a half dozen port holes open at this moment)?
Also, living in the tropics, do you think it would last long enough to make it a reasonable expenditure (humidity is 80% right now and it's not summer yet)?
Thanks
