Re: attaching wood furring strips to inside of hull

I put up more furring strips this weekend. Have to admit the hot glue gun idea works like a champ. Saved me a bunch of time. Gorilla glue and hot glue, the bomb.

For closed cell foam, I'm using Volara. Available in rolls, and economical. I'm skinning it with stick on drawer liner which is easy to wipe down and can be replaced if damaged.

I think if you use closed cell foam it will serve that purpose. Those cheap sleeping mats that backpackers use work well.

Re: attaching wood furring strips to inside of hull

If the insulation is 1 inch the strips be 1 inch softwood. I like backcutting on table saw if a lot of curve and precut foam and use it for spacing vertical (no spiling) Horizontal ceiling can be spiled or not but beading looks good. I've found red cedar too soft and shows finger nail cuts. Yellow cedar is good but a hard wood is better It's your man cave so budget is not important. Lots of different glues work good.

I steer away from resin in "paint cans". The resin from U.S. Composites comes in a gallon can with a screw cap in one corner. I am generally using small batches and like to be able to pour it out into a cup.

The thickness will depend on the insulation you want to add and the 'elbow room' you're willing to give up. A full inch would be as much as you'd need, I'd think, but that can encroach into the space more than you might like. I used 1/2 inch with 1/2" closed cell foam panels glued in place in between, with the battens onto that. We gained a lot of room because all that replaced a 2" thick cushion.

As for bending, the strips can be kerf-cut to facilitate that if they are not flexible enough as they are. Kerf cutting also makes keeping them in place as it cures a bit easier..
