insulation - glue or velcro!?
we're adding new celotex insulation to our hull, and after removing mounds of carpet and 3M glue, I'm not so sure I like that approach given the absolute party it was to remove.
I've read people just stick the insulation between the ceiling/wall and the interior formica, or velcro it on to make it stay in place, and then I hear it said that it has to be an absolutely airtight mating or it will end up mildewing and collecting water in there.
I favor velcroing the celotex which makes it easy to remove once a year to clean/spray with mildew remover, and we could paint the hull with anti-mildew primer.
However, I definitely don't want water pooling and dripping all over the place in the interior.
How big an issue will this be (heading very north across the atlantic and then back around to carribean so all kinds of weather in store for me.)
