What is the green deposit on my boat cover?

You see it every year. That ugly green deposit on your boat cover. But what is it and how does it arise?

What is the green deposit on my boat cover?

  • Green deposits are algae and mosses.
  • Algae and mosses are organisms.
  • These organisms grow easily on a wet, moist and shady substrate.
  • Take a good look at your boat cover. Probably one side is greener than the other.
  • That green side, with lots of algae and mosses, probably gets less sunlight.
  • Less sunlight means that the cloth stays moist longer there.
  • That is also the reason that this annoying green deposit mainly occurs in autumn, winter and early spring. After all, those are the months with the least sunlight.
