    Default August Race 'Boat Bomb' Anti Mould, Air Conditioner

    Anybody used this on their boat?

    Curious to know if it's as effective as it claims to be.

    Isn't that just like the things you can buy for cars as "air con cleaners", except with a silly "marine" price premium? I've used them in a couple of cars, they seem to work OK. The ones for cars start from about £3.

    Dunno. It's the anti-mould side of it I'm vaguely interested in - though a nice, fresh smelling interior has its appeal .

    The car "bombs" contain fungicide, to kill mould growing in the aircon system. The difference with a car is that you set the aerosol bomb off with the ventilation system blowing full speed, so the contents get distributed around the car. This wouldn't happen in a boat, so you might get a pleasant smell for a while in the area you set the thing off in. It would be a lot cheaper to try one of the car ones first.

    For me it's the damp/condensation that leads to potential mould that is the problem, since I moved the boat to France and the marina power supplies have 24 hr timers so you have to push the button every day to maintain 240v mains to the boat. I have several of the absorbent type 'dehumidifiers' on board but more to make me feel better than with any hope of managing the issue.
    I'm still looking for a local I could bribe to stroll down the pontoon push the button every day for me...!

    Sufficient ventilation should be enough.

    Indeed, mine in Portugal, Spain and Gibraltar for the last 6 years hasnt had a problem. We keep the aft cabin hatches cracked and there is a dorade in the saloon permanently open.

    Thought so too but thus far with hatches cracked and a vent in the washboard it still appears (or rather drips somewhat) Thought I might fit a dorade to the forward hatch as the bow cabin seems worse

    For similar price, would this be any better?
