Has anyone tried 3M mould/mildew remover. I've read on other forums that it works well at removing mould stains. The product reviews were positive. It would be great to find a solution as this issue is not going away...

Here is another product you can try to remove the stains...
http://www.pink-away.com

From what I have read it sounds like the bacteria lives inside the seat cushion so replacing the vinyl may not solve the problem. Need to figure out how to kill the bacteria that is living in the cushion. it doesn't sound like their is an easy solution.

Only until you cover the boat again. I have noticed that if I have the cover on in cold/cooler weather the effect is less than when covered and sitting in the hot sun.

I wonder what would happen if you replaced the cushion underneath the vinyl? The cushion is probably the source of the bacteria!
