Re: Insulating with spray foam?

Spray foam is not a good idea. Those hatches are probably there to allow access to some equipment or fixings. If you spray foam it it will be a impossible to access these things.
Get some double sides tape and those soft jigsaw like playmats for children if you want to save money or something like Armaflex. Tape all the joints so moisture doesnt get into between the seams to the cold hull to form condensation.

Shade your windows first to see if that. A lot of heat is coming through those.
