Just a quick update on my keeping cool efforts..........
Went to France
a couple of weekends back and visited a Hypermarket (for us Islanders something like Walmart counts as exciting
) and saw some large Car Windscreen sun shades (with silvery stuff on one side) on special offer
Plus they were concertina foldable.
So I picked up 4
Only tried them out on the cabin
roof once so far (and not with any finnesse) - but very noticable both on deck
(cool to the touch within an hour) and underneath (headlinings still down) the deck
was the same, whereas an hour before whilst not hot was still noticeably warm - and I guess kinda acting like a radiator into
FWIW when I had a kip for a couple of hours (progress on the refurb
) I did wake up a bit chilly
- whilst not of course scientific gives me encouragement to progress with the idea further.
Of course here is not the Carribbean - but we have our moments
- and where my boat is presently moored can be something of a suntrap / oven!
I forgot to take some photos
