Actually it is not a common issue with Ferro. Unless the inside is totally shut up, which it must be. Water has to get inside to be there to accumulate on the surfaces. Have you leaks from rain, that runs down into the Bilge and then is evaporating and condensing on the cold walls/Ceilings? Bare cement surfaces do not usually create moisture. Painted surfaces will. If you have no ventilation at all, the Mold will grow on the ceiling.
A simple vent for and aft, that allows air in and through the boat and then a vent out, makes an enormous difference. If you are on a swing mooring, that is even better, because the Bow always points into the breeze all the time. I get no moisture/mold inside my boat at all. The previous owner did, because he used to shut all the vents.
