It still has a distinctive odour when we lift the companionway boards each weekend. Nothing nasty... just distinctive.
Yep, it's not unpleasant at all - just distinctive. I'm just curious to know what it might be. It seems to be common to all boats after they've been on the water a while.

And no, it's not the head hoses - our boat is not big enough to have one!
