Ventilate very well while you're doing it and dilute the bleach. A cup in a gallon of water is more than enough. Then you have to rinse off well, as chlorine is a corrosive and will eat any rubber or metal you leave it on for a long period of time.

The real problem with mold cleaning are the spots you can't see. If there is a colony behind a bulkhead or under a sole somewhere, it will just continue to grow onto the surfaces you just cleaned. If you have a real problem, you essential have to strip the boat down to really get on top of it.
