I used Owens Corning pink foam board from Home Depot. Filled in the cracks between the boards with spray-in foam (not much). Added six inches of insulation against hull
, and as much as I had room for on all other surfaces. Then covered that with 4x8 White FRP Wallboard from Home Depot. Used West System epoxy
to tape off the seams of that.
We didn't put in a refrigeration
system. We use the resulting box as an icebox
. We're just back from a two-month summer trip to the Bahamas
, and the box would hold ice for over a week, so it seems to be a resounding success. We prefer the icebox because it's so much easier and simpler to manage the electrical
This was not too difficult a project, I thought, for what it's worth. This was on a Pearson
35, and the improvement over the original icebox was phenomenal.
