Well, I have never had it on a boat but we get fungus on our horses and I am sure the same thing would probably cure it for you. Go to your local plant nursery and get a product called Captan (sp?). We mix a handful in a bucket of water and put it all over the horses. This really works great. In fact with all the rain we have gotten one of our mares came in with some on her face and we had to treat her tonight. I have also used it for fugus under toenails on humans and it works great for that too. I mix it a lot stronger for that. Good luck.

we have had the fungus like that form on our pop-up camper and there is a thing cleaner you can buy at walmart called Simple-green. It is totally biodegradable (spelling?), so it will not do any harm to the water or anything. Also try calling a boat dealership they would prob have some idea on where to get something stronger if it is needed if they dont stock it themselves

Post flood clean-up taught us a dilute mixture of bleach and water will kill off most mold and fungus.

Once you get the main fungus under control, you will need to hit it again with a dilute wash, every 30 days, to kill it off for good.

The weak bleach mix is not generally bothersome to carpets of paints. If your concerned with fading do a test area and see how it will react.

Some molds (Black molds) and fungus are not good for you, so avoid inhalation during clean-up. Some molds will raise heck with boat decks so try to get after it as soon as possible.

Ed is right about the bleach. We use that to spray down the horse stalls and wash all brushes, blankets, etc.. But we use it real strong on the stalls because we are not worried about colors fading.

Bright sun light will also kill fungus. It breeds in nice warm wet places.

    • Glad to hear you're back up and running again.          
    • I got my boat back today and it runs great now but the mechanic said I had too many idling hours on it and it had a lot of carbon build up. I have trolled a lot with this motor . It has ran great but I did have  this recent issue with it where I had to bring it in and it runs good now. Mechanic recommended run it more often at higher rpm's.  For those that troll with their main engine,  how often do you run in a higher rpm's? I  use carbon guard  and thought that that would prevent the carbon buildup.  If I trolled for three or four hours at a higher RPM would that be too much ?          
    • Saw some reports from Algoma that looks like fishing has picked up some out there and some bigger fish being caught. I'm not ready for snow yet but I hope we actually get some this year. 
    • Well I got it done. I got some bolts washers and rubber grommets. I drilled holes in the counter top. then brought the bolt up through it put a 1/2in rubber spacer then a washer and bolted right into the bolt holes where the leg levels went. It looks nice and will be nice not having to put the fridge up and down every time a guy moves the ice castle and should hold fine driving down the road.         Nice exactly what I need to finish the project, so the fridge door doesn't fly open when driving down the road.

    •   And it has some sort of virus.
    • The boat is getting lots of use,,,, Heading to Algoma july 29th and back to Isle Royale later in august 
    • You're bolting a mini fridge to a countertop but worried that a tie down strap will make it look trashy? OK then.
    • The strong rainfall of the last few weeks was compounded this week with more rain accompanied by high winds, thunder and lightning, as well as several tornado watches across the state. Downed trees and branches and flooding was reported at numerous state properties throughout south western and south central Wisconsin. State park crews were actively clearing roads and trails, and we're expected to have additional updates before the weekend. Anyone planning on visiting a property in these areas is urged to contact the property directly for the latest conditions.Water levels across the state are still elevated and this week's rains means sand bars will likely be in short supply again on the lower Wisconsin River. With the high fast moving water many kayakers and tubers are taking advantage of the situation. A group of kayakers on the Peshtigo River said with the fast water they shaved an hour off the time it normally would take them for a river trip.Wild weather has put a damper on fishing pressure across the state and there are isolated reports of partially submerged fishing piers. Anglers have reported some success for catfish on the St. Croix River and anglers have been having success fishing the Flambeau River for musky, walleye, northern pike and bass. Largemouth bass fishing has picked up with high waters in Dane County rivers and there were reports of an uptick in walleye and perch are coming in from Lake Winnebago. .
