What happens to the inside of a seariders flooding hull when left on a mooring?

Does the lack of sunlight stop the growth?
Or do you need to somehow antifoul the inside?

It makes a good holiday home for Conger Eels

I would have thought that you wouldn't get much growth inside, but around the hole at the back? I'd be more concerned about the gel coat layup inside as the constant imertion (spelling) in the water could cause osmosis if it's not all tickety-boo in there.

I have not had any build up inside the flooding hull at all.

My plan was to pull the boat out for the winter but am now thinking again.

Am looking at having a full length cover made and investing in a "Versadock".
This way whilst still on its berth it is not in the water.

Cheers
