Interior Hull - RAT FUR

Ok, I'm still desperately trying to figure out what to do about our interior ceilings (walls) in our 1985 36' Hunter. I know the "rat fur" needs to go. I contacted a fairly high-end marine "interior" firm looking for guidance and service. I was told they don't have much experience with this as they usually do much larger vessels with panels. Great... so no mega yacht, no help?! Can someone PLEASE tell me if the Armitex SA insulation would work in the salon and v berth? Then how to get either Nautolex or something else over the insulation.... I'm so frustrated at this point I'm ready to scream!

Re: Interior Hull - RAT FUR

Most of the vinyl wrapped panels I have seen are simple pulled over thin plywood and stapled with stainless or monel staples. Usually attached with velcro or other hidden fastener on the back. I tend to prefer PVC or FRP panels for ease of cleaning, but you lose the insulation.sound deadening effect.

Did you come up with a fix?

Re: Interior Hull - RAT FUR

Blowfish,

If I were going to approach this problem, I would look for closed cell foam for the insulation, or refrigeration board insulation, because they will be easier to cover with readily cleanable plastic cloth than the fiberglass.

Good luck with your project.
