I wrote a follow-up article about the insulation
I'll be using. That might sound like another random topic jump, but there's actually a method to the madness.
The short-term plan is to keep working toward splashing the boat
this fall and bringing it to my home port. I could get a lot of things done in the two hours I waste every time I commute to and from the Roamer. It was too cold over the winter to even think about handling the engines and finishing up their install. Instead, I've been focusing on getting major structural work done, like installing the aft stateroom walls. I'm also working on sealing up the exterior, which will include installing the bow hatch
on the foredeck. I also need to install the portholes in the V-berth and aft stateroom. But before I can install the windows, I have to install the interior
wall panels around all of the porthole openings. And before I install those interior
panels, I need to get spray foam insulation
on the hull
and underside of the decks, and then I'm putting polyester nonwoven fabric
