I have a 13.5ft Nautica rib with mildew stations in the hypalon fabric. I've tried 409, 3m adhesive remover, x-14 with a magic eraser. Nothing seems to get it out. Any suggestions?

Good old bleach in the direct sunlight works best for me!

Boss has just purchased a 38 foot cougar rib with twin Yanmar 260hp Diesel engines driving Mercury sterndrives.  Is this towable and do I need to disable the drives somehow?  I am concerned if the engine is not running then the props are spinning with the water flow but no lubricant being pumped round?  Would it be different for outboards? Keen for any advice, thanks in advance.

I do believe the answer in no problem whatsoever...

The lower units have an oil bath lubricating and cooling the components in the lower drive assy.

If the lower part of the skeg is just touching the water for towing stability, it is likely that very little turning drive will be imparted in the the drive shafts, and no gears will be meshing, just bearings and shafts rotating in an oil bath they were designed to be in anyway.
