Smelly Pods

Is there any simple way of getting rid of the strong small of resin I have in the jockey seat pods? I know the craft is new, but the odour is so strong it's tainting bottles of drink I put in the pods. Is this just a matter of time, or is there something else I can do (Leaving the pods open for a long time isn't really an option.

I'm also getting a stong whiff of petrol from inside the console storage area. This may be becauseI've been keeping the spare fuel can in there which may be letting out a bit of vapour. The fuel pipes and filter run though the console, so may this be causing the problem?
It's enough to taint a couple of pasties I had in here for an hour.

Should I consign the fuel can to a pod?

Chop the Ribcrate in for an Os' prey. Our pods are fully flo-coated on the inside and smell only of lightly perfumed quality lingerie.

I'd investigate the petrol smell further but you'll need to accept the smell from the resin. Often it's catalyst rather than the styrene of the resin which smells. Over catalysed resin stinks for years. It will eventually subside but venting will help. A good wash with soapy water occasilnally will remove the catalyst as it makes its way to the surface over time. Low styrene emission resins are available and they do help but its a bit late for that in your case. You can prevent the tainting of food and drink by not using plastics as their countainers, also, wrapping food in aluminium foil before packaging into plastic works quite well. The vapour will penetrate normal packaging so items such as mars bars etc will taste of resin and you might even burp fumes a bit later if you eat them. Really!
As an aside, there's more to building a good boat than just slapping resin onto mat and careful consideration of the boat's application should be taken into account. I've used five different resins in my boat and I live in the cabin so from your experience you can imagine how intolerable that might be if not considered in the build. Sorry, bit of a rant at the builders there.... ooops...

I know it sounds silly but if the Pod is glassed in and so therefore airtight it is worth sticking the hoover nozzle in there to suck the fumes out every so often.

Mollers, are you confusing "smelly old Y-fronts" with "lightly perfumed quality lingerie", or have you some fetish you haven't shared before!
