Vacuum panels

Just wondering if anyone has experience with vacuum panels used for refrigeration box insulation.
I'm finishing a Cape George 38 that came with a Glacier Bay panel set. By the time the boat is launched the panels will be 10 years old and I'm leary of the technology. Would I be better off over the long run with 4"-6" of blue board and fewer worries? Tearing apart the galley due to panel failure is not on my list of boat maintainance items.

Bill
