Am restoring a Paceship 32 (Briton Chance design) and in the forecastle extending the berth. The hull
sides are covered with ash ceiling strips and I've had more milled. I've attached a photo
, shown is a locker that was behind cabinet doors - thus behind that locker the hull
was left bare. I'm filling/glassing in the "running light" ports
; they are not needed as I've both a tri-colored mast head
and forward mounted running lights on the pulpit. The locker is being eliminated so I can extend the berth to the bow; I am simply too long for the berth. Will be removing all of the ceiling strips and thought I'd insulate the hull before putting back the old ceiling strips and adding the new strips to cover the whole area - it will help make the sleeping more comfortable as fall gets pretty chilly here in Maine
Wondering what folks might suggest to line the hull with - the space available between the hull and the ceiling strips is 3/4 of an inch. I could shim things and possibly make an inch space, though that would be pushing it.
