Mold and mildew are an inevitable concern in marine environments. That’s why high-quality boat covers, like Westland’s, are made with naturally mildew-resistant fabrics and are designed to provide superior protection against these potentially damaging fungal infestations. Westland’s covers include sewn-in ventilation, an effective precautionary measure that cuts down on mildew build-up, and provides an escape route for moisture. For an added level of protection, we also recommend using a boat cover support pole or HangTyte to prevent water pooling on the cover. Westland’s vented boat cover support poles help to prevent water formation, which can cause sagging and mildew. When properly cleaned and maintained, your Westland cover will provide effective protection for your boat, helping to prevent both mold and mildew to keep your boat looking great.
