Re: Buying a moldy/smelly boat--nuts?

The only thing you can reliably learn from a mold thread is that there are many sorts of people in the world.

Mold Growth
Mold Killer
By week one mold had flourished on the aged boards and to a lesser extent the historic logs in sample set 4 (DOT in glycol at 40%MC). Surfaces treated with DOT and glycol show no signs of mold growth. Borates are ineffective against mold , but ethylene glycol is known to have mild biocidal qualities of its own. Mold growth continued over the weeks of testing, spreading to the all samples in sample set 4 and eventually taking over sample set 3 as well (DOT in glycol at 20%MC). However, surfaces treated with glycol remained mold free through the duration of the treatment, even
in the face of abundant and varied mold on surrounding surfaces. Both sample sets treated with DOT in water remain unaffected by mold.
