I have become convinced the ice box on my '90 Morris Justine is not adequately insulated. I see condensation
on the outside on hot, humid summer days and there is almost no insulation
on the top of the box.
I was agonizing about ripping everything open (major cabinetry surgery) when I read a fantastic post by Richard Boren advocating a much simpler approach of building up from the inside with materials from Home Depot.
This is the approach I plan on taking. Because I'm saving so much time and money
from the initial plan, I'm tempted to use Aspen Aerogel SPACELOFT insulation
. I almost have to use something like the Aerogel because the bottom of my box is curved all the way up to the top following the contour of the hull
My question is, can I just spray glue in a layer or two or Aerogel and a thin layer of FRP board from Home Depot and expect to be able to place all my food
stuffs on it without crushing down the Aerogel? If not, I guess I'll have to build in dividing strips to support the weight, but that means many smaller pieces of cut Aerogel glued in between the support dividers. Not ideal from an insulation point of view, but perhaps, still a huge improvement.
