Bubblehead, I have been putting up the reflectix all over the boat... hope it really does work. I also have a large opening where my anchor chain is, bungied a piece of tarp over it for Sandy, worked ok. Need to get a new cap for it. I figure, after going through Sandy I should have a good baseline for the worst that will happen.
Wing, rum makes everything better! Let me know how the teatree oil does! Smells better than vinegar!
The good news is, after a single night of having insulation installed and running the heater at full throttle, the boat is now DRY. The window frames have stopped sweating and my clothing is all dry. I still have two long panels to cut and install on the bulkheads in the v-berth, but that's all.

I'm mightily impressed.
