It costs more, but Ethylene Glycol antifreeze the green stuff, takes a longer time to dry out of the wood.
And it kills rot fungus. Maybe mix it 50-50 with water. Although it is better sprayed in the bilge, a deck gets too much sun. For wood bilges add in Borax roach powder, that will kill everything that eats wood. Borax powder dissolves in hot water or alcohol. I have sprayed dissolved borax on wood, it soaks in then when it dries, the wood has both borax and EG antifreeze inside the wood and nothing can live in that. EG is a type of poisonous alcohol.
Neither one has any odor, no smell lingers in the boat.
