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.

In the harsh marine environment, something is always in need of repair. Margaritas fix everything.
