Re: Mold and mildew

Update

Went to the boat today after the Ozone generator had been running 4 days straight.

ALL visible mold is dead. Brushes off as dust.

Opend all cabinets and cupboards. Opend more access to the bilge, turned it back on and will go back Saturday.

Dehumidifier came this afternoon. Will take it to the boat Saturday and fire it up.

Plan to wipe off old dead mold w a solution yet to be determined, to forestall new growth.
Plan to have Ozone generator and dehumidifier as permanent fixtures operating when the boat is unoccupied and has access to shore power.

I will keep you all posted.

Thank you so much for your continuing help and advice

Maka

At the risk of (well intended!) thread drift...

If you plan to keep your vessel permanently (or semi-permanently) attached to shore power, make sure a galvanic isolator is installed as a primary defense against electrolysis. The galvanic isolator is probably a good idea for all vessels, but absolutely so for any vessel intending to spend a lot of time on shore power.

Now back to mold & mildew...
