Busy with Fizzy episode 19 (Insulating and re-carpeting the boat)

This video shows how we insulated our Shetland Black Prince boat with Armaflex closed cell foam to make it cosy in the winter and cool in the summer. We also replaced the old grey carpet with new marine grade carpet from a company called Mega Van Mats.
The task was completed in stages between March 2014 and July 2015. It wasn’t the easiest task but it has drastically improved the boat. The insulation has all but eliminated condensation in the winter ensuring the boat is better protected and it is now comfortable inside on a hot summer day.

Thanks for watching, constructive comments welcome.

So glad I found this channel it’s given me some good ideas. I’m doing a total refit of a 26ft Buckingham cruiser.
Great vid!! :)

Did you use the same trim adhesive spray to adhere the carpet to the armaflex?

Which website did you buy the Armaflex closed cell foam ?
