      I'd use just plain ol' chlorine bleach .It will kill any spores,then evaporate leaving a reasonably clean timber for painting.

      take a look at this
      i havent used antifreeze but i've read about it. if you're concerned you might try it. make sure you get the recommended type. i used cuprinol on my skiff build many years ago but i think the real copper based stuff is no longer available

      Help, my AF3 has taken on water and she's still on the trailer. Let me clarify, I was out of town for a couple weeks and the wind blew my cover open and I came back to a lot of standing water in my hull from a few days of rain. Some of the wood is untreated bare wood. I have vac'd out the standing water and I'm using fans to evaporate the rest. How should I proceed? Do I apply some kind of fungicide? I plan to paint on some epoxy at some point but what treatment should I apply to the wood prior to resin?
