My winter storage leaked and water sat in the hull and mold and slight signs of rust are appearing. How do I get all the water out? What is the best way to clean this up?

Do you have a bilge pump and or a drain plug, if no then you will have to start bailing or buy a small pump. Once you get the water out, put a small heater in the engine compartment dry it out, a little elbow grease and a can of paint and you should be good to go.

A shop vac that is rated for wet dry will help you out. You can clean individual areas out and it removes debris too. Depending on how much rust I would wire brush the rust, maybe use some CLR and lightly oil the metal when done or even paint it.
