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.

    • Think im gonna try good old grass clippings since they seem to replenish themselves very rapidly
    • My good buddy from back in SD does fantasy and we have another group we are apart of and he ended up tied for 5th overall last tourney. After day 3 he was in 3rd with the possibility to win it. So close to getting that $2500 basspro card
    • After the cold snap, temps on Trout were back down in the high 40s. Back around 53 now, and should keep warming if the forecast holds. Fish have already moved shallow, bedmaking and piscine lovemaking will follow soon for the brown ones. I am hitting Leech tomorrow...will be interesting to see what water temps are in the protected parts of the bays.
    • Here's some useful information: go shallow, and chuck a swim jig with a paddle tail trailer and set the hook til your arms fall off. Better?
    •   If you like to tinker with guns, you can get a surplus Saiga for a couple hundred bucks.  All sorts of accessories available for these, and they can also be converted to 12 gauge if that's your preference.          
    • I was out last night on a local lake and was surprised to see the water temp down to 57.  Caught a couple cookie cutter fish, but not the big ones I was looking for. Fished a lot of weeds in the 6-9ft range, but not a lot going on there. The biggest one was still shallow in some reeds, so not sure if we are still in the spawn/post spawn stage.     Whats everyone else seeing out there for a bite and fishing conditions. Big weekend coming up, Good luck!! 
    • Maxine_Partain, Welcome to the forum.  There seem to be a lot of folks from Canada joining up in the last half a year which is nice. The sad thing is they all seem to make about 3 posts on the same day they joined and then they never come back which is sad. Hopefully you will keep posting.

    • hi and welcome to HSO. I think you mean double hung not double pane. if you have moisture between the panes you have a seal failure. depending on the brand you might be able to just replace the glass. If you have lots of rot you may need to do a complete replacement. Best to have a window person pop by and check out the situation.
