Re: 69 Signs You Live on a Boat

mold is not acceptable & with proper ventilation &air movement can be controlled.dehumidifying boat from human breath etc.is key..fireplace will work..fans....good thru ventelation...& routine wipe down of area...live ed aboard for 20 plus years no mold.

Re: 69 Signs You Live on a Boat

I certainly wouldn't put up with mould. Not saying it cannot occur but if it does then I'm putting a stop to it. If a boat is not insulated well enough to prevent mould then at least make sure anything stowed has ventilation.

The one that had me laughing my a$$ off the most was the one were you bend over to pick up the soap and when you stand back up you have a shower curtain stuck in your butt crack
