Got an answer from the factory - explains some things and has a solution for uncured gelcoat. Here goes-
"... Not knowing what the smell is, anything I pose is somewhat of a guess. We have noticed some tacky gel coat in lockers on some of the boats out of California. We believe this to be a wax that was added for the purpose of curing not doing its job properly. We have solved this by switching to a urethane based gel coat designed specifically for bilges and lockers. If you have this issue on your boat, you may consider coating the interior of your lockers with a marine polyurethane paint to seal in the gel coat..."

Every little bit helps....

I'm on it. There have been a number of helpful replies, and as soon as we get back from our weekend jaunt out to the local islands, I'll give some of them a try. Thanks for sharing your ideas and those of the factory!
