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

Silly question I suppose, but I haven't got a liner myself, and I have enough mold as it is, can't imagine trying to get to it between a liner and the hull!

In disaster clean up for wet mouldy basements we use a mixtire of TSP and bleach this is about the same chemical make up as the mould spray that can be bought at a fraction of the cost.

If you can see mold, you need to wash it off and dry completely. Chemicals like bleach and ammonia work (NEVER use together, the gas will literally kill you). Some say vinegar works, but you better air it out well. I use diluted vinegar to clean my eisenglass dodger and it stinks outside for hours, can't imagine down below. Tea tree oil is the latest environmental mold killer and I find the odor acceptable. You can buy it in a spray bottle.

Kanberra gel, placed in the cabin will keep mold from returning, but its expensive. I use it and started to get lazy and let it run out. Sure enough, boat odors began to return. I loaded right up again, particularly before I put her away for the winter. Its slightly less expensive to buy the refills and reuse the containers.

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.

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

Throw in a bunch of dryer sheets between the hull and liner. In shopping for dryer sheets, look at the ingredients. Select the one that has the highest % of "quaternary ammonium chloride", otherwise known as quat salts.
Why?
because a half oz. of the liquid will shut down a septic tank.
Don't ask me how I know.

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

Mainesail: I'm sure you must have some good examples of this happening, is this a chronic issue for boats with liners/how is it dealt with?

Huck, I'm not sure how well it works but the concorbium mold treatment stuff is supposed to be a surface coating that encapsulates the mold as best as I can tell from digging around their product nonsense about "crushing" mold. The main advantages I see with it is that it seems that it creates a layer that stops mold growing, rather than just killing it once as bleach does.


Minniewaska: That was the basis for my question, how the heck would you get to mold in between the hull and liner if it started growing there? cleaning my hull has been aggravating enough

FBK: I thought those were supposed to be bad for you? Someone warned me off using them, it seemed otherwise like a fairly logical approach, I was planning to chuck them in various lockers.

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

Restoration companies will fumigate your house, after removing everything and surface cleaning, when you have a mold infestation problem. I suspect it is something that requires a license and is bad for you.

It would be something worth thinking about, particularly if going up on the hard.
