Hypalon Fungus

My RIB is made of Hypalon. The cover I have been using did not let moisture out of the boat while stored at the Marina. The inside of the RIB is now covered by small dark dots which I believe are some kind of fungus. Do any of you members know of a product I can use to clean the fungus. My boat is yellow therefore it is a cosmetic matter and bleaching is a threat.

Have you tried scrubbing with washing powder or Vanish stain remover?It's a cheap one to try and was fairly effective at getting dark spots off our inflatable.

I remember having read that hot milk works pretty well ... cheap to try !

I did use hydrogen peroxyde, 130 volume, that one used to destroy worms in antique furniture. It works, but take care, dangerous for skin, eyes ...
