A perfect job for last winter, the v-berth insulation project kept us working, and kept us warmer. Aside from cutting large sheets of material on the dock, we had an easy inside job. Once we decided on the materials, we finished in 2 days! After contemplating the options for too long, this was pleasant surprise! We chose two layers of insulation. The R3 foam we used provides convective insulation against the cold and may dampen the noise from the sea a bit. We used the reflectix insulation against the hull, as a shield from the sun’s radiant heat, to keep the v-berth cooler. We have heard it will increase our radar signature too, but we are somewhat skeptical.
