We would insulate but for a different reason, mainly to stop the ice crystals forming inside the boat
We have a cored deck
which does help but for you worth doing even if its with home depot stuff for behind radiators, foil covered bubble wrap type stuff if the budget
is stretched (isn't it always
The vinyl is the original stuff Moodys fitted 23 years ago. We have the odd mark and a little staining were the previous owner had a parafin lamp I think, but otherwise it still looks really good. The thin plywood
panels are easy to take down and balance on your head
when putting them back up again, that said those GRP panels look interesting. Fold the vinyl over the edge and staple on, quick and easy.
Just choose a light colour, no dark oak or it will look like a cave.
