I have a regular version with different output levels and a timer.

Oops, I just figured out you were talking about Pureayre. I used the regular version. Sometimes you can find deals on it at pet stores.

I tried Pureayre and found it works just not a permanent fix. In fact, I never bought it again. I thought Febreze was just as good.

I'll give pureayre a try. I spoke to the manufacturer (they were very nice, btw) a while back. It's my understanding that it and fabreeze are very different products. The later masks smells, while the former is based around non-toxic enzymes that chemically bond with organic matter and slowly break it down. I imagine that multiple applications would be necessary. They mentioned the fogging solution for a boat as it will basically find it's way into any corner air does. I like the fact that you can basically drink the stuff and it won't hurt you. If it works as well or even almost as well as ozone without the downsides, it seems to the better solution. Cost seems to be a wash.

My understanding is it's made from sugar, hence the enzymes.

Good Luck

Don't forget to wash out and bleach your anchor locker. BTW, this is the classic discussion of dealing with the symptoms and not the disease IMHO, as brought up by Psneeld and others.

A major part of a boat purchase decision should involve the smell test, it reveals much about a vessel's health.

That is a very good suggestion. Anchor locked with line rode in them can go sour and you get a sickly sweet smell that in some ways smells like propane. Washing out the locker and the line clears it up.

That's all good advice but I don't have an anchor locker.

My anchor locker is on deck, not inside the boat.

Hmmm....that is interesting. I don't recall a 42' GB where you didn't access the anchor locker through a access door in the fwd V berth. What year is it?

It's a 1966 and I have replaced the entire deck. I have an ongoing project thread about it. Actually, I haven't completed the anchor locker yet but it will be on deck just below the pulpit. I converted the old locker to a bedding locker for the V berth.

As I complete the project, I'll post pics.

Mice in cars? Where in the world are you? I've never had that problem or known anyone who did. But then I've never lived where mice were a big problem.
