I can replace it fo 40 bucks and 3 hours labor? I dont care if it holds up too long. An you are right I would like to put the great looking teak holly stuff but the money?? and where to find it? and cuting a pattern? Way too much to think abought. Time for a dark and stormy. HAHA I will let you know next year how it holds up thru the summer. I do know the you dont want to get solvents on it.

Sorry... I meant nicer than what I have (white MDF), not nicer than yours! I like yours a lot!

Re: Low buck projects- Let's see 'em!

Edel 665 came with cheesy grass like wall paper that had fallen off / turn moldy, was dusty.

I pulled it all off (except for 1/4 berth where there is a leak I need to fix). Wire brushed the foam residue off so that I was down to the original red fiberglass.

My original plan was to use cork rolls but I am glad that they were more expensive than the 2x3 foot panels. Although you can see the joints there is no way that the rolls would have been practical to work with and glue.

I used Lepages construction adhesive. It was a pain because no matter how big I made the hole in the tube it was a battle for my caulking gun to squeeze it out. I considered spray but xnayed that when I read that you had the added step of letting it set up and get tacky.

Cork was <$60. 2 x tubes of glue was < $25.

I will finish off the top edges with caulking. The bottoms will get covered by mattresses.

It's important to thoroughly break the seal at the neck of the cartridge. Either that or eat your spinach.

Cork! What a great idea! Insulating, naturally sound insulating, and mold resistant. Nice choice...

Re: Low buck projects- Let's see 'em!

This past weekend I made up some lifeline back rests. Less than a hundred bucks for some PVC pipe, pipe insulation, Sunbrella and about an hour of sewing.

I can post some but they are no different than what you can buy. I will try and get a photo of one at lunch today.

Tim,
Another idea is to use pool noodles. Our dollar store had them. They are a bit thicker, and more comfortable than the pipe insulation (I did the pipe insulation on my old boat).
