Congrats on the purchase.. Newport 30 is a decent boat. You will enjoy her. And the life.

I lived on a Grampian 26 before I met my now family. The summer after they came into my life we spent 50 days out and about the Canadian west coast. 4 of us - similar to the folks on the Catalina above. We loved it so much we bought Stone Age and have been sailing ever since.

Re: insulation. We used a paint additive to help insulate Stone Age. Working extremely well.

Just add the "bubbles" to paint and apply as normal. Kind of like wrapping your boat in a vacuum flask. It does leave a kind of texture, but not too bad. I'd use it inside. Also maybe under non skid on deck too. It's great stuff.

Thanks for the tip. That seems like the perfect stuff for the places too wierd to put down foam sheet.
