Ozone or chlorine dioxide is supposed to work well I've heard, I'm just surprised it isn't a common issue with liner boats?

Re: Do liner boats get mold in between the liner and the hull?

I would consider an ozone fumigation as a one and done method. But, I understand it is very bad for rubber parts and hoses. Not sure how much damage is done in one shot, but I think you need to seal up the boat and let it stay ozone saturated for days to work. The nice thing about them, is once you've aerated your boat again, its gone. Unlike chemicals. You can rent ozone generators.

Re: Do liner boats get mold in between the liner and the hull?

Here is something to consider: Humans have been in environments with mold for all of our history. There is mold almost everywhere. People who have sensitivities to mold could have serious reactions (just as people with peanut allergy would have to peanuts). There are a few particularly dangerous molds, however, they are rare.

I would rather be sleeping in my mold infested boat than in my mold infested house!

Mothballs kill mold but don't remove it.If you are not living aboard, the smell will evaporate by spring. You could drill a few holes in it, under the deck,and sprinkle moth crystals in.

Re: Do liner boats get mold in between the liner and the hull?

I had looked at an Endevour 2 years ago. The boat needed major work & that didn't bother me but I decided to walk because it was a mold fest. Being a boat built on a pan, I had no idea how you would remedy a problem like that.

I'm not happy unless I'm complaining about something.
I'm having a very good day!

Yuk. If it doesn't, I would be tempted to scuttle the boat.

True, but we've also spent a large part of our history crapping in our drinking water...

It was more curiousity than anything, but I do try to minimize the mold growth in my boat nevertheless, if nothing else it smells bad and stains things.
I was wondering if it was something I should be cautious about in future if I were to buy a newer boat with a liner.

Hidden mold is only one reason to be weary of liners, IMHO. I just don't like the idea that there is some part of the boat that is not accessable.

We just keep the cabin well ventalated and run the dehumidifier when in the water. In South Carolina the houses and tress are covered in moss and molds. Lucky us, so far the boat is clear.
