After I use my boat, I park it outside with the storage lockers open and the entire boat uncovered for a day or so to let it all dry out.
I have heard you will have mildew issues if you don't.
I have an opportunity to leave my boat in the water and in a slip for a month.
I would use it once or twice a week. I would need to leave my life jackets in it (wet). The rope and boards would also be a little wet.

Aren't I going to get some mildew if I do this?
How does everyone that leaves their boat at the lake or river deal with this?

I use 4 dry z-air in mine. Use a 5 gal bucket, put a cheezecloth paint strainer over it and dump dry z air pellets in it.
Also if you have 110 power try a CaFramo electric dryer in it.

Yeah use damp-rid type product like packrat says.

Also I take my wet life jackets with me, and hang them up in the garage or backyard at the house.

I think I'll do that.
I bought some Damp-rid today.
I'll just take my wet Jackets home and dry them between uses to keep things dryer.
Thanks for the info.

yep thats what we do. Don't even use any moisture reducing products, just make sure you take wet towels, life vests, etc. with you when you leave.

We slip ours all summer, we lay the wet jackets out on the seats when we cover it up...everything else wet goes home. Love not having to trailer, downfall is a dirty boat...
