I am a live-aboard on a Caliber 40lrc in portland , Maine and am doing the same thing. I recently installed an ITR Hurricane H2 heater which uses about 15gallons of diesel a week. One of the best heat savers I have installed is the clear shrinkwrap. It was 65 on deck at noon yesterday.

As for insulation, I installed some 1/2" Tuff-R from Home Depot this past weekend. It works fairly well next to the bunk(where the admiral sleeps) and inside one of the hanging lockers. Unfortunately it dents easily and is open cell. I am looking for an alternative.

As for the plywood cored decks, that is correct. Caliber uses plywood cut into squares and then tiled in epoxy throughout the deck.
