Well, I have taken up the task of ripping everything thing out of the cabin of my boat, and need some advise as to the interior work. I spoke with a person at my marina, that told me I need to first put up a layer of protective foam, to the walls of the cabin because of the “Boat sweating”???...He explained that there is usually some moisture build up between the fiberglass walls, and the interior wall carpet due to the temperature changes. Does anyone know if I need this foam or not? Also, if it is need/recommended, where can I get it?
I was also considering doing the entire cabin with a teak and holly? Are there any advantages/disadvantages to redoing the complete interior of a boat in wood as opposed to doing the walls in that upholstery style carpet? I figured the acoustics may change, but I assume soundproofing it can prevent this? Also, is that carpet material a special marine upholstery, or can any commercial (very thin) carpet work?
Any suggestions, advise, or recommendations would be appreciated.
