Re: Insulate for ceiling drips?
I have been looking into what is going to be the best method of insulating a wooden boat cabin. and above the waterline I cant find anything that is going to work as well as a properly applied spray foam insulation. I should give the best thermal break and it will create its own vapour barrier on the inside surface of the foam. My walls and cabin roof are 1.5" thick and I am going to put in 1" of foam. unless I can find a diy kit to fill the void after both sides of the wall have been sheathed. then I want to have a full void and no airspace. Also if you can set up a fan to pull cold air off the floor or from the bilge and out of the boat and let fresh air come in from the various air leaks will help to keep the air dry . In winter here in Vancouver I run a dehumidifier too so that the humidity doesnt get too high during all that rain.
Everyone is a genius. But if you judge a fish by its ability to climb trees it will think it is stupid its whole life.
