    Default Weekend warm storage

    Have any of you every found a storage unit that rents a space large enough to hold a 26' boat? I'm wanting to do some carpeting inside mine before summer and need a warm place to do it at. Only need a place for a few days. Anchorage to Wasilla would work.

    What kind of carpet you installing? We use a throw rug in our cabin so it can be removed and cleaned.

    I'm wanting to carpet the inside walls from the floor to just under the windows. Early and late season, you can feel the cold just emitting from the walls. Yeah Yeah Yeah, Steve will chime in and say a glass lobstah boat won't do that.... LOL We use cheap little carpets on the floor and they work great. Just wanting to warm/quieten up the lower sides a bit.

    glass boats are cold also buddy ! You might look into something called "paint a carpet" i had it on the interior of a boat and it worked well at keeping the condensation down but didn't do much for insulating. Get a good old Dickinson diesel or propane heater and you'll stay dry and cozy in that tin can

    Hey Steve. I have an ESPAR. best of the best. Lol. I figure carpet will block some chill and quiet down some water slap while on anchor at night. Maybe not. But it will purdy up the inside since I can't get a fancy Wooldridge like the rich guys on here.

    I have a Kingfisher with fuzz on the walls. Carpet would probably warmer and more sound deadening. Are you going to post pictures of the installation?

    Yeah. I have it cleaned up as of last Sunday since it was fairly warm out. The ESPAR worked pretty darn good. If this warm weather keeps up I'll be able to get it done this coming weekend in the driveway. We will see about that. Might take up one of the many offers and use a workshop instead. I'll be sure to post some pics. Doing some painting inside while I'm at it too.

    Had been thinking about doing the same thing (or something similar). I hope this goes well for you and look forward to seeing the results. Good luck.

    Well it was warm enough to get her done today. Painted the sides and got the carpet glued in. Wife wasn't too happy spending a day in the boat but it's done. Looks great and hope it was worth the trouble. I'm thinking it will be warmer and a bit quieter while on anchor with the water slap.

    Rob, what about below the floorboards? I remember a while back you pulled the old foam out, but did you put anything down there for sound deadening?

    I did remove all the foam and waterlogged decking. But only under the back deck. I still have the foam in the front half. From what I could tell, it was nice and dry up there.

    Right on. I've been contemplating trying to do something about the water slap also, so it will be interesting to hear how this project performs. I'm thinking that it has to help to some extent at least.
