I have access to some hardwood, oak etc, and also cedar.

some is tongue and groove, and I was thinking I may line the roof with it.
Anyone previously had success with similar procedures, and what might be a good insulator,[if needed] closed cell foam, or polystyrene type insulation, or  [celotex].
I'v heard it said leaving the wood unvarnished lets it breath, and varnishing will attract condensation.
any thoughts.
cheers.

There are several 100-year-old boats on the Broads, probably all having wood 'ceilings'. So cosy, especially with oil lamps. Yes, varnish what is exposed to the eye, bare for the rest. Crushed cork is the traditional insulator    Wink !

@JollyRodger, my thoughts entirely ,crushed cork, I can get in  various thicknesses, would it be preferable to leave an air gap in there somewhere? between the hull and cork? or between cork and wood.

I'v seen a cork paint advertised too, but the claims seem a little "snake oil" like,, I cant imagine such a thin membrane of paint being as effective as much thicker cork.
I have pretty good ventilation in the boat and I believe this helps no end.

my appearance is down to me, my attitude is down to you.

If it were me then the cork, either glued or sprayed, would go hard against the roof and I would have an air gap between cork and timber.

Hi I have Oak ply on all my surfaces coated with egg shell varnish keeps it clean looking now ten years old i do have sprayed foam insulation on all surfaces this is much more efficient insulator then cork or glass fibre and has the advantage of insulating every nook and cranny that would be impossible to get sheeted insulation to stick to unless the insulation covers the outer surface you will get condensation between insulation and body this will run down and collect on floor, bilges or where its passage is interupted leading to rot or stains.

That is sound thinking. I have no experience with sprayed foam, is this DIY doable and is it easy to control. e.g.thickness?

the diy aspect was something I too investigated, spray foam is it would appear a "marmite" thing, some say they have positive results, others claim it's highly toxic and should be avoided, as with all things, the answers to any questions about condensation and its cures seem to be very varied,
my intention is to glean as much first hand knowledge, and hopefully make an informed decision on those results.
thanks for the input so far. it is helpful.

Hi  yes it is DIY you buy/hire  a two cylinders you do need to mask up but unlike paint spraying not toxic and more controllable you spray as much/thick as you like suggest you try on a scrap piece of wood as it expands as it drys so you need to spray less thick then the final thickness you want, as it expands as it drys thicker you can go over it twice if it needs to be thicker.Google to get info.
