If you insist on attaching the insulation somehow, I suggest using small squares or strips of velcro, so that you can remove it when the weather is warmer.

I actually sail my boat, so I don't want any of this stuff to be permanent. It's unsightly, and in plain view. I only tolerate it because winter is coming on.
I sail mine as well, however I want a more permanent and aesthetically pleasing (I am a girl after all) solution. I am installing the insulation and then placing a painted facade over it. Thought being that it will keep warm in winter and help keep cool in summer.
