You should have a vapor barrier against any surface adjacent to the exterior if you're going to use fiberglass bats. Without it, the surface will condensate and the fiberglass will get wet. The DIY closed cell polyurethane spray foam kits do this job well ( two part ). 1/2" or an 1" would be enough for an adequate vapor barrier. The material is fire rated. I've welded and plasma cut through this foam, and once the source of ignition is gone, the flame goes out.

My boat's steel, so condensate is more of an issue, but wood and fiberglass will also sweat. Home builders around my area have been using spray foam for years now on house's. Because the stuff works so good , but is a little pricey, some builders will spray an inch over the framing, then finish off with bats.

In my ER, I sprayed closed cell, then 2" of rock wool sheet material , then sheathed with perforated aluminum.

I think the DIY kits cost about $1.00 a board foot. The yield is not as good as advertised, so you're going to have some material left over that cannot be sprayed.

Looking good on your project.

Hi mate,
Have you got a link for this foam? If so, can you please send it through so I can see what we have similar over here

Cheers mate
Matt.

Greetings,
Mr. H. The significant mention in Mr. 63's post, in my opinion, is this: "...sheathed with perforated aluminum." Ventilation my friend.

Yeah noticed that mate. Appreciate the reminder, however, this is Perth, Western Australia. There's more risk of the ER bursting into flames than getting condensation on the floor boards lol ... Totally different climate than what you guys are used too. I suet the other Aussie members will concur :-)

Proper insulation techniques aren't a high priority in most of Australia due to the minimal difference in temperature between outside and in. It might be still worth keeping in mind how the system "breathes" when sealing between hot and cold. Let the cold side breathe.

On a different note: THANKS A BUNCH for the shiny new bow roller!!
So nice to be the recipient of good karma and I'll make sure it rolls on.

It arrived while I was away, postage paid , and I gave it a test fit yesterday. It multiplies my boat bling x3. It will be the main ingredient for the nose job on my boat.
I'll post a thread with before and after pics.

You've also got me thinking whether a new Sarca might look better on the roller rather than my Marsh stockless anchor. hmmmm

Hi mate. Yeah I agree, and agree with RT and everyone else that mentioned ventilation.

As you've mentioned, Condensation is not as serious in Australia, more so here in WA due to the dryness and lack of humidity so I'm not too passionate about mentioning it but it is in the forefront of my mind and will come up with a design innovation to address this matter and appreciate the reminders and the fact that y'all are looking out for the best interests of AXE and us.

Glad your prize arrived mate. Make sure you post some pics, Can't wait to see how she looks and I reckon a new SARCA would look great, as well as ensuring your lady stays planted firmly to the sea floor.

Hey that went well. That's a first for the forum I think Matt. Little peeks at the great man (or woman) in action like that from time to time, especially when doing something which represents a real milestone, would be very interesting.

It's 60 year old seasoned Jarrah roof beam from a house that was getting pulled down across the road from my house.

Cut two 500mm X 500mm inspection hatches in my 850L water tank. Cost all up was $190.00

Pretty stoked considering some of the costs I saw for inspection hatches
