Vinegar will also prevent the growth of mold. One thing you might want to look at a new product that is on the market. It is a spray that is specifically designed to prevent mold/mildew growth and is supposed to be quite good. It was recently written up in at least two sailing magazines.

The fuel should be usable, provided you've added a good stabilizer to it. Fuel polishing is a way of treating diesel fuel, by circulating it through a series of filters, to remove debris, sediment, water, algae, etc.. It is a pretty good idea to polish your fuel if you've left the boat sitting for a long time.

You know what the first rule of sailing is? ...Love. You can learn all the math in the 'verse, but you take
a boat to the sea you don't love, she'll shake you off just as sure as the turning of the worlds. Love keeps
her going when she oughta fall down, tells you she's hurting 'fore she keens. Makes her a home.
