Leaving Stuff on Board

My wife has a question regarding leaving bedding and clothing on board when we are not. I am sure putting everything through the wash is step one. We are talking 4-5 months in well vented boat in the Grenadines

Re: leaving stuff on board

We leave everything on board for 6 months. Either in heavy duty plastic bags or Rubbermaid tubs. Everything should be well sealed. Have been doing that for ten years without a problem.

Re: leaving stuff on board

Yep, seal it up good. Those vacuum bag things are great. Otherwise, you are going to smell like mold..... of course if you've been in the tropics for quite a while, you probably already do smell to landlubbers!
You will understand that when you get back to the boat and get a whiff after being on land for 6 months!
