Hey everyone, I have to be honest this might become a bit of a series of posts
I recently purchased my second boat
, it was a kit boat
so the Interior
is a bit unconventional. The pervious owner either had the best of the best locally do their boat work
, or they DIY'd it. Poorly. Most of thier DIY
stuff has left me scratching my head
wondering do it live with this DIY work
or tear it out, make a plan and redo it.
Todays episode is insulation
. I'll start by saying I have never insulated a boat and it's nice to have in the PWN. The previous owners, use many types of insulation
in there DIY'ing insulating adventures. They decided to glue pink foam board to the under side of the deck
in the salon
, then painted it and used some sort of spackle, the result is well ugly(pictured). On the other side they hid the ugly with sticky back cork tile. The result is ... So ugly. My original idea was to cover it with a wood
panel but then I got to thinking how do I check/see if my deck hardware
When insulating do you normally make sure hardware
is still accessible from the underside?
They also spray foamed that **** out of this thing... I cant inspect the back side of the stanchions hardware either... is that an issue?
This is one of those decisions that if are start tearing it out I'm in for a huge amount of work.
, reading material or funny
stories are welcome. I will post more weird DIY **** from the boat as I start thinking of how to address them. My personal fav is where they ruined and blocked the original fridge to install a stove
top, but that's for another day.
