Mildew ?

Postby MACHAYA21 on Sat May 11, 2019 6:34 pm

Have a RT 23. Recently discovered some light mold in the center lazarette and on top of gas tank under the cockpit. Any ideas on how to remove. I am concerned about damaging gas tank,fuel lines,water hose,and wire insulation,using any harsh chemicals. Any suggestions appreciated.

Clean up with Concrobium and then use a chlorine dioxide packet product like Star Brite Nosguard SG 10gram slow release for maintaining in closed areas during humid and damp conditions....

Listerine. You can find it in any port, grocery store or pharmacy. I have a bottle in every pilot house. You can smell my minty fresh boats from the dock.

Agree with the Concrobium. Most effective thing I've seen. Non toxic too. Get from Amazon, and follow the directions on mixing with hot water, keeping it stirred.
