Re: Gelcoat Mildew-I'm so sick of gelcoat mildew

"Wet and Forget" appears to be some sort of a pesticide. Not the kind of thing that I want to be dumping into the local waters.

I'm reading this thread with interest. My old Catalina 25 has the same problem (it is also in Seattle, on Lake Union), and I still sail on it often since a friend of mine bought it from me. I've never found the perfect solution, but Woody Wax was next on our list of things to try.

It's not a problem in the boat, only on the non-skid surfaces.
boats that I sail on regularly: Pearson 28-2, Rondar 505, Yankee 30, Blanchard Junior
