Just wanted to let you alll know that I have found a closed cell foam product manufactured in the UK called Versifoam which is a closed cell, sprayable Polurethane Foam that comes in an easy to use kit

It is supplied in two sizes of kit:

Versifoam 15 is very portable and you can get into small spaces. It yields about 0.34m3 of Foam per litre.

Versifoam 50, although portable yields about 1.0m3 of Foam and gives cost advantages over the 15's.

This should do the trick! I'll let you know how I get on, costs and how easy it is to work with later on.

All the best

Stephen

I've also previously used cork tiles on my grp sailing cruiser, but found that they became discoloured and more alarmingly, tended to curl out at the corners. After a while they would lose all remaining adhesion.

Therefore, I will try out the Versifoam product. I've been kipping out on the boat on a deep `trot' mooring in mid December (minus cork tiles) and found that its a bit `taters' especially with a 5 knot spring tide running in the Swale!

Actually, to be completely correct it's "Glass reinforced polyester."

I am sure they are illegal in many places outside the US as well now, but be advised that some spray on foam insulations in the past have contained formaldehyde, and are considered a health hazard. I'm sure any modern 3M product is up to date in that respect.

Thanks for the warning Oscar. It is difficult to know what is good for you and what isn't these days.

I am working in Yeman at the moment but I keep my boat in Denmark and I am fairly sure Denmark is clued up on banning chemicals which are considered a health hazard. I intend to do the work when IO hav eleave next month so I will see what is available.

Cheers,

Stephen
