Re: Boat odor

i throw some stinky fresh scent antibacterial liquid soap into my bilges. fixes odors with whatever smell of the day i desire and cleans bilges as the water sloshes a tad in wakage and winds. cheap and easy.
so far, i like the roses and the lavendar scents best.
plentiful in mexico, where bilge cleaner is prohibitively priced.
bathing also helps, btw, as much of our boat smell is from our own hygiene preferences.
it also helps to occasionally scrub the bilges and use running water and pumps to remove the old stink. never fails.
