Depends on the how the liner is installed to the hull. On my boat there is no path under the liner and the liners is completely bonded to the hull.

But I would think it is easy to kill off mold that would get under the liner between it and the hull compared to so of the other spots that mold grows you know all those places in the boat you can not even see.

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.

Yes! Good ol' Paradichlorobenzene! My god, I still remember that from High School Chemistry class! Those Jesuits don't @#$% around when it comes to teaching!

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.

I would rather be sleeping in my mold infested boat than in my mold infested house!
True, but we've also spent a large part of our history crapping in our drinking water...

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

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.

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 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.
