You can get the sheets w/ Foil face on flame resistant foam etc. made for the heat of engine compartments and noise control. It's not cheap


This one isn't bad in price,

We were neighbors, and you were one of the few people I knew, if I have you correctly. You're on B dock, you were a nurse, you lost your lovely bride two years ago to cancer, and you're working on a townhouse in East Boston. Do I have the right person?

I was on C dock, the guy who never got a cover up, only the frame (I finally got both up last winter) on a 28' boat no longer called Fiasco (as she generally was, in so many regards, and I disliked being reminded!)

I summer on a hook in Duxbury Bay but she (now Nanagram) was in such tough shape, after three years living aboard without hauling, that I put her in the Brownell yard this winter for a mini-refit next spring and summer.

I plan to sail south mid- or late-summer and aren't coming back. I've had enough snow and diabetes is ravaging my body. I want to sail south while I can still read charts and have feet for flippers.

Sometime, come spring, I'd love to catch up. Maybe coffee at Sorelle?
