Buying a Boat with Rot

I was wondering if breathing the mold/rot is dangerous.

Disinfecting it with the product you mentioned would, I suppose be adequately safe if one wore a mask.

As far as replacing the wood, I have no idea how to do that, but I'm in no rush.

Best you stick to breathing in that natural healthy air on the motorway instead of worrying about that weird smelly nasty wood rot.





Rot Spores

Mold spores are present in much of the air we breathe, normally they do not cause problems.

However, some moulds can become hazardous to health where concentrations are high and exposure is prolonged.

Wood rot is usually caused by a fungus whose spores are much more interested in finding a home within plant materials rather than in your lungs.
