Hi Greybeard They are talking about professional house applications in attic's the DIY type is different plus you are only spraying a thin 1" 2" thick layer not a attic with 7" 8" thick i certainly have had no issues i did the whole of my interia engine room to locker interia's down to below water line i now can sit inside in shirt sleeves throughout the winter WITHOUT the central heating running constantly.

@John,
I'm always a bit dubious of chemicals and such like, I don't even trust food manufacturers and their "e" numbers that hide carcinogenics etc,, so much that is reputed to be"safe" has turned out not so safe, especially in later life, tobacco, asbestos,etc.
I maybe over cautious but care,caution and research has kept me alive much longer than I believe bravado,chance and ignorance would have.

have you got a link to the stuff you used?
cheers.

No matter what insulation you put in/on the hull and superstructure you won't get rid of the condensation unless you double glaze the Windows. Wooden roof is fine, if it's in keeping with the boat but unless you paint it a light colour the interior become either dark and oppressive or full of character depending on your outlook.

if it is to be it is up to me.

point taken on double glazed windows, that would be quite easy, windows are being resealed at present by BWR, once refitted I could add an interior glaze easy enough.
re darkness of wood,, I can live with that as its only an occasional  sleeping area.
success with preventing condensation appears a bit "hit and miss", with some things working for some and not others.
hopefully I'll get lucky.

We have double glazed windows and  kingspan insulation fitted to hull and superstructure seems to work very well except we still get  condensation on the aluminium frame unfortunately, secondary double glazing should work well.

In discussion with a neighbour at the marina, and they said its possible to get some kind of paint, or coating which stop the aluminium from attraction the moisture.
he had no first hand evidence though, he heard it from a canal boat owner.

It's funny really, you ask a dozen people about curing condensation and the answers don't always point to any one thing that cures it.
but I thank all for their input, and will be looking into all methods.

The world's best cure for condensation is masses of ventilation, and warm, woolly pyjamas.

It's not a case of the Aluminium attracting the condensation it is more that the aluminium isa very efficient conductor of heat/cold and the surface will always be as cold as the outside temperature. The only way to stop condensation on the Ali frames is to introduce a thermal break, secondary glazing should do this but if you use Al frames the make sure the inner and outer frame are not touching.
p.s. No more nails should work well on the pyjamas Wink
