    That's not your carpet is it?????? It's amazing to me how many boats in our marina storage yard are not covered at all. There's mildew and crap all over the seats and carpet. Can't believe they would spend good money on a boat and let it sit uncovered where the sun and rain can tear it up!

    Getting back to that carpet..........we've had an abnormal amount of rain here in VA this year. (I know you all did too at Lake Norman) We would uncover the boat and see little areas of mildew in some of the corners of the carpet throughout the boat. Rain gets through the cover and is unable to thoroughly dry..........I have a spray bottle w/a diluted solution of bleach and water that I spray a light mist on these areas and the mildew disappears and there is no damage to the carpet. I've done this for years and have been successful................

    OK Malcolm, you can call me a smart aleck and I definitely deserve it. Just know I'm kidding, but I just gotta know, did that boat have Tap Fins? If not, is there any chance that Tap Fins could have prevented that mess?
    Go ahead Malcolm, I deserve it!!!

    Someone has their work cut out for themselves to polishes those toons. How long to it sit in the water to get that bad?
