We also experienced serious squeaking. It comes and goes. In our case it was mainly due to wood from the kitchen touching and rubbing the inner fibreglass shell, immediately at the rear end of the top of the starboard stairs. On the port side there is also a squeak, but we still have to localize that one; it is less annoying.
The one on starboard was really maddening, even the smallest movement of the ship caused a serious squeak caused by stick-slip from rubbing. We have solved
it temporarily by working a piece of baking paper (folded to be e.g. 8- or 16-fold) between the kitchen's wood and the inner shell. Problem is this paper wears through, and you have to replace the baking paper now and then.
One reason for the squeaking occurring is, in our case: The whole kitchen / starboard hut woodenassembly is glued to the hull
with big blobs of Sikaflex-like stuff; a white marine
kit/glue. And this glue does not held well to the plastic surface of the wooden kitchen panels
; I have already seen a number of spots where this kit has come loose.
This means that the kitchen can move around more than originally, meaning that the level of squeaking changes.
From a heavy sea the squeaking can change, due to the whole kitchen block shifting position slightly, is my impression.
I have infomed the dealer about this; I hope to get a reaction from him how he proposes to solve this. He might inform or ask Fountaine Pajot
