I was thinking about using Reflectix on both sides, after I got the custom fit made. Then marine vinyl over the interior Reflectix.
I'm on the boat now, setting up the webcam I got for it. That's another story -- I can't see the webcam from the internet (the marina's ISP can't give me a port mapping), but I can push out a snapshot every x seconds to my ftp server. So that wil be very good for checking to make sure it's plugged-in
I looked up the R-factor of epoxy as an insulator. It was very close to concrete, About 1/100th the insulation of Reflectix, if I got it right. (There are Europeon R-factors and U.S. R-factors. I may have gotten them mixed up.) When I got here, it was 45 degrees with 1500 watts of heating and 30 degrees outside. So a little bit of insulation will go a long way.
Great minds discuss ideas;
Average minds discuss events;
Small minds discuss people.
The best minds discuss sailing (and a little bit of politics). I don't know why. It's a mystery!
