It's obvious that you're not enthusiastic about using Ozone, but it IS effective and no more harmful than chlorine. It simply doesn't take a high concentration to kill the mold, and for the hour or two it takes there is no damage whatsoever to anything other than the bugs. Further, the lingering odor, what there is of it, is delightfully refreshing.

It is as effective and chlorine is just as destructive, but chlorine bleach on ly goes where you apply it...ozone fills the entire boat and affects everything within the boat... which the bleach won't do.

You know what the first rule of sailing is? ...Love. You can learn all the math in the 'verse, but you take
a boat to the sea you don't love, she'll shake you off just as sure as the turning of the worlds. Love keeps
her going when she oughta fall down, tells you she's hurting 'fore she keens. Makes her a home.

Mold Away

I killed as much mold as I could last October, and have been killing more as I find it this year. I had a plastic instrument cover for my Nexus display panel that was black. I thought it was dirt. Nope, mold.

I gave it one spray with a product I bought at Boater's World called "Mold Away" and the black instantly vanished, leaving a remarkably clean white plastic cover behind. It was then that I learned that NEXUS was molded into the cover!

Anytime I see mold exposed, I use one squirt of mold away and its gone.

We found using the gigantic buckets of Damp Rid (the kind with the sawdust in the bottom), did a lot to minimize moisture issues over the winter season.

No musty smell in the boat this spring either.

Which is great, since I think there are only so many hours in your life that you should spend in a small, somewhat enclosed, area (like a boat cabin) using bleach as a primary cleaning product.

I think I'm pretty close to my quota.

I have used a product for years, Kanberra Gel and it has keep my Pearson mold free. I'm not hooked on the smell, too much turpin for my liking. So as I researched the web I found a product on line (commercial link deleted) that has a great smell, cost less and lasts longer than the Kanberra. I have an 8 ounce container on my boat and with one of the solar powered vents, we have no mold. So far it has lasted about 50% longer than the KG. It's worth a try.
