Default Mold

I have a 2005 Stamas 270 with a Lewmar horizontal windlass. The line feeds into the bow however there is no "hatch" only an inspection plate under the front coaming bolster. Not the easiest to get to and sealed perfectly. Yeah sealed! No air flow whatsoever! Well as you can imagine there is a good amount of dirt and mold inside where the line sits and bottom (motor) part of the windless. I also pulled the inspection plate for both gas fills (both sides of the boat) and guess what? Yeah more dirt and mold. Not terrible but my OCD is in high gear...LOL

My question is what product would you use to clean the front "anchor locker" and possibly behind the fuel filler inspection plates without damage to any electrical motors, fuel lines or whatever else is down there? I verified through the manufacture that its all finished fiberglass down there and everything drains through the boat and to the bilge.

The boats not here right now but will try to get pictures when I can.

Sounds like an interesting setup! The best product for you to use in this situation is a double batch of our Moldaway cleaner. It has mixing instructions on the side, like I said don't be afraid to double it.

You'll mix it in a spray bottle and douse everything you can reach in the stuff. It won't harm any fittings, electrical, or motors as long as they are sealed at marine grade level, which should be standard on any boat.

After letting it sit around 10 minutes, use a hose to rinse the compartments and the mold should come right off. One application is usually more than enough but or really bad mold, you may need to repeat the process. If you have any questions, don't hesitate to ask. Good luck!

by double batch, did you mean double strength?

2x MoldAway & 1x water?
