So, what makes a boat smell like a boat??
Even after a month or more sitting on the trailer in our back yard in the hot (drought-affected) Australian sunshine, our boat still has that musty boat-smell to it that reminds one of the wide blue oceans and all that other soppy romantic stuff...
I suppose that with good ventilation on dry land it would eventually go away and be replaced by a rotting-wood, neglected, kind of smell; but since our new berth cushions couldn't possibly be moldy yet, is it the paint? the salt? or something else??
A bad day on a boat beats a good day in the office
