Mold on the boat seats

7 posts in this topic

The seats on my pontoon have gotten mold on them twice this summer and I am wondering what I can do to slow it down or stop it.  The boat is on a lift with a canopy so it really has no way to get wet.  I don't drive it fast enough to splash water onto the inside so it should be pretty dry when I put it away.  Any suggestions?  Is there a product that I could apply to the vinyl that would make a difference?

Thanks for your time.

I found this stuff and could not believe how well it works! I use it a time or two during the summer. My boats under a canopy as well. It's been a pretty Hot and humid summer so things just don't dry out as well.

I also use Aerospace 303 Protectant, but it is a more UV protector that many southern pontoon guys swear by to help keep the black mold/crud off. I did not use it this year (wifey has said she will apply it but never has... and I have been too busy/lazy to do it...) and I noticed that we do have a little bit for the first time since we got this new pontoon in 2012.

I may try some of that stuff leech to clean a bit and them the 303 regular again.

No doubt 303 is great stuff. And if you'll check the auto supply places you can find dozens of them. Armor All also makes a line of cleaner/protectants.

I like Spray Nine cleaner to clean the seats and then 303 Aerospace Protectant afterwards. I live in Missouri mold and mildew on boat seats is always a problem. Remember to closely follow the 303 directions for use though. If you do not polish the seats well after use the mold can be even worse. Do you have any way to put a fan in the boat while on the lift? That would also help.

picture of Concrobium Mold Control

I use Concrobium on patio furniture and it cleans mold off and stops it from coming back.  It is available at most big box stores

The 303 is awesome. I use it on my tonneau cover too

    •   You will get plenty of recipes for a brine or injection, or even an injectable brine which work good for turkey breasts.  A common injection are the store bought ones you see in sporting goods stores in the cooking section. All kinds of flavors from Cajun, to Honey Butter, Garlic & Herbs, etc. Some even come with a free syringe.  Some simple injections you can make are apple juice (plain or jazzed up), beer with seasonings, a doctored up chicken broth and one of my favorites a Lite Apple Brine.  Since it's injected I like lower salt than you would use for an immersion brine.  My Lite Apple Brine's ratio is 1 gram of canning salt mixed into 1 ounce of apple juice.  If you buy an 8oz bottle of apple juice, just add 8 grams of canning salt, shake it and you are ready to inject.     Years ago I asked Old Dave, an online friend, for help on an injection for a pastramied turkey breast recipe I was developing.  He sent me a modified version of Shakes Injectable Brine, which is fancier than my Lite Apple Brine.... and guess what, I really like it too.  Here is the recipe... and if you want to read more, I'll have the link to my write-up below.  BTW, I was skeptical of the cloves, but I tried the first one following the recipe and it's good.  My only variation is I'll use agave nectar instead of the honey sometimes.    Old Dave's Poultry Injectable Brine, based off of "Shakes" Injectable Brine. 
      32oz clean water (non-chlorinated and not softened)
      1/4 cup pickling salt
      2 teaspoons of TenderQuick
      1/3 cup clover honey
      3-4 bay leaves
      1/4 teaspoon ground cloves
      1/2 teaspoon pickle spice

      Heat it up in a sauce pan but do not boil. For a 12-15 pound turkey, inject 2 oz in each leg, 2 oz in each thigh, and 4 oz in each side of the breast. 16 oz total per turkey. I like to do the injection at least 8-10 hours before the fire.   My Pastramied Turkey Breast write-up can be found HERE   EDIT, you smoke them until the internal is 165° to 170°.  An injection will help keep them moist even at the 170° temp.  I like a mix of cherry and hickory, but keep the amount gentle.  Apple would be a safe bet for your first one and you can always use a stronger wood next time.  
    • First off, the comment I made which you replied to with a hypothesis never stated that there was proof they did anything wrong. I merely and accurately stated that there was a chance they did some of the same things and it appears that may be the case.   You said plainly that VW could have chosen the Daimler tech but chose not to. In the end doing so may very well have found them in the same boat.    
    • Haula is probably going to see a lot of playing time so I don't doubt he will have some nice years, kind of like how Brodziak scored 20 playing as our first line center. I like Schroeder as first call up or emergency player but he just can't consistently bring it in the NHL, that is no crime because when he gets hot he is fun to watch but he just can't stay there. 
    • That's some good info, Thanks.
    •   I think they're shut down, too.  Smells like no money and more welfare...    
    •   Not sure if their still producing cardboard up at that plant anymore?
    • Now Haula and Tuch will have career seasons next year.  Haula is the odds on favorite to win the Ross trophy and Tuch should have a couple Norris' in the next 5 years.     Sounds like Wild might not bring Schroeder back either.  I really hope they are contenders for a strong center or a really nice goal scorer.  
    • Good point about the center support.  I wandered out to my ground blind on one of the last days of archery season to find the roof caved in and two poles busted. 
    • MMmmm Cloquet....   Smells like money.
    • I am a little concerned with it fading but it needs to be left up for the deer to get accustomed to it so no way around that.   I assume the sun is the main culprit in fading so I'll do my best to protect against that.  One spot I'm considering is tucked into some pines which create a lot of shade, brushing it in heavily should also help keep it out of direct sun as well.   Good point about a center support to help with the snow.  I'll make sure to add something.
