All marine upholstery as well as substructure should be vented to allow
any trapped moisture to escape.
It is vital to ensure that wet towels or clothing are removed from upholstery immediately and it is advisable to refrain from stowing any wet clothing inside the boat in general. All lockers and cabinets should be opened in order to aid in circulating as much air as possible.
Boat owners are advised to cover their boats when not in use. Adequate venting should be allowed to avoid trapping moisture to assist in reducing the adverse effect of continuous sunlight. This can degrade upholstery components over time and shorten the service life of exterior upholstery.
