at time of writing and those seem to have very inadequate insulation.
Can any one help, as my wife dislikes the cold!
I can't comment on any of the other modern cats as I haven't looked that closely but I know on our Leopard
every roof panel and quite a number of wall panels
are all attached using velcro. Access for maintenance
is brilliant but it also means that you could very easily fit insulation into these areas. Behind most of these panels
you have around 150 to 200mm (6 to 8") of empty space, just make sure you keep the weight of the insulation as light as possible.
It has crossed my mind a couple of times to do the master cabin
but for heat and sound rather than the cold where we intend to sail.
