It''s interesting to note Geoge''s good experience /w cork; which I cannot explain.
In George''s painted surface installation, I expect that the cork is acting as insulation, and the paint (might be) acting as a vapour barrier.
Notwithstanding George''s satisfaction (8 years should be a good test), I still cannot recommend cork on a boat.
JEFF_H could offer a better description on insulation & vapour-barrier design; perhaps offering a better alternative? What are the characteristics of cork (R-Value, Flame/Smoke, etc.)? I don''t imagine them to be particularily efficacious.
