I hope the pictures in my last post are showing!?
I am gluing a 10mm closed cell foam mat to the GRP surfaces and covering that with a vinyl liner which has a 5mm foam backing. The decks and cabin top have a foam core laminate and I will cover the deck areas with a 6mm rubber/cork composite. I think she will be quite cosy.
The soundproofing is from a Swedish company  called Karnag.  http://karnag.se/ljudisolering.html

I have been able to put in some hours and it is finally starting to resemble a boat again.
I have been forced to stray somewhat from the KISS-principle. There was simply not enough room for a conveniently placed porta-potti so I have installed a pump out head with holding tank. I realized that the soundproofing of the engine compartment I had used, the foam with aluminum foil type, was so 1990:s and is actually scientifically incorrect so I ripped it out and replaced it with state of the art space age material (actually the space age was the 60:s and 70:s. Since then we have not gone past low earth orbit) which is a foam with a lead/bitumen backing that absorbs the vibrations in the bulkheads. Now starting on the V-birth with the intention of getting the whole hull insulated before it gets cold. This way I hope I can work on the interior all winter.

Tucked in anchored at VonDonop Inlet on Cortes Isl and a Cape Cod Cat motors by. Too cool to see a NE boat in the NW

Boat looks good Kev.
Yup, summer is coming to a close up this way.
But you know, so many down south don't use their boats during the summer cause it's to dam hot.
