Come to find out the little yellow spots are mold, after removing the seat cushions I can see it like everywhere, I have never seen mold that is yellow, anyone have any good ideas to clean this, almost looks like it the yellow has stained the edges of the seat cushions, I will post a photo later of it.

What color is the vinyl that it "stained"? Have you tried magic eraser?

I had soem permanent marker "stains" on the white vinly on my new boat, I tried everything...magic eraser, diluted bleach, acetone, hairspray, goo gone, 2 types of vinyl cleaner......then tried my fiance's face wash. dabbed the spots with a q-tip and set the seat in the sun for 30 min...the marks are totally gone. It is the 10% benzoyl peroxide that took it out.

Ken,

After each time out, I open up the entire boat so that it will dry out: storage lockers, engine cover, seat cushions, driver's seat up, observer bench open, etc. This lets water that would otherwise stay & mold dry up and opens up all the storage areas for drying.

Works for me.

I had a bad mold problem and used Star Brite mold and mildew remover. Most marine stores Cary it also Walmart has been know to carry it. Take your boat to a do it yourself car wash scrub it down with Star Brite, and make sure you rinse everything. Chances are it's on your carpet so make sure you clean the carpet as well

that is pollen from a tree, are you close to a crape myrtle? The little flowers will fall on the seats and stain them. sun is the best fix for that...
