Last winter we unknowingly had water trapped in the storage area of our 216 SSI.  It was shrink wrapped and trapped during a warm winter.  We took the wrap off and discovered most of our vinyl was badly mildewed from the inside.  No method could clean it up.  We tried everything.  Short of replacing all of the vinyl has anyone tried painting your seats when the vinyl had just worn out?  There are a few products on the market.  Has anyone tried this method and what were your results?

 

Thanks, Jim

That is always a danger with any plastic bag pulled tightly around the hull.  Just a damp week or 2 does it sometimes.

 

Human skin oils, Food & drink spills or even a pet staying in one spot are all food tables for molds & fungus.

 

Avoid plastic coverings. We all forget or even have a alternative plan once the mold starts..............I never check the boat at the marina till next spring.

 

I am lucky I have white. I do use straight bleach in bright sunlight. Works very well. No reoccurences. Great on those spider poop stains.

 

I had a small 16' boat that I stored under a big tent. No problems......plenty of air movement. Mouse traps took care of them as fast as they came in.

Many auto upholstery repair shops do this.  It looks great at first but doesn't last very long in a car (tends to wear off in a few months).  Maybe it would last longer in a boat with less usage.

Probably not in the harsh marine environment ... humidity, sun, water, salt, etc.

Best ... Richard

My guess is it would be a short term fix. Time for new vinyl. brick
