that I can't ID, but seems strongest inside teak
lockers. Clothes come out with the smell and still smell after washing
. It's like the car B.O. on Seinfeld! It is not the head
, it is not the bilge
, it is the wood. A close nose finds the strongest smell from the inside surfaces of wood lockers throughout boat
, with no identifiable moisture intrusion, just nice clean-looking but stinky wood. Does teak oil
degenerate or feed smelly lifeforms? The boat is left at the dock
with a/c on to dehumidify, and sometimes with an ozone generator
, neither of which cure the problem.
I am going to try a bleach wash of a cabinet interior
, followed by a varnish
or some other type of sealant
. Any similar experiences or ideas, with the various advertised odor-fighters would be very much appreciated.
