I have a 1980 Cal25 MkII which has that grey cloth with foam backing on the cabin hull
walls. The foam has deteriorated into powder and dry chunks and the cloth is hanging loose. I pulled most of the cloth off and shopvaced the foam chunks. How do I get the rest of the residue off that is glued on the walls? scraping doesnt seem to work. Or do I even have to remove it?
What I want to do is install paneling on the walls. Do I have to epoxy
battens to the hull
and then screw the panels
Also I found a structural adhesive
that is for installing porous paneling to fiberglass
. DAP brand I think. Is this a good way to do it? I'm worried about the hull sweating under the paneling and mildewing.
I sail out of Kenosha, WI if the weather
makes any difference to how I do it.
Thanks for the help,
