New cushions

One of the first projects we did was to create and sew new cushions. We chose a fabric called “Dralon” at Stoff & Stil wich was water repellent and anit-mildew treated. We chose another fabric to the bottom parts of the cushions which breathe more.

 To create the cushions we bought regular mattresses from Jysk (12 cm thick). We used the old mattrasses to create paper patterns. We nailed the patterns on to the new mattrasses and used a bread knife to cut through the foam.

 Almost done!

Insulating the inside of the hull

To make it a bit more fresh and comfortable within the boat we replaced all the old hull insulation with a new thicker one. The insulation we chose was made of 5 mm polyester foam topped with a layer of fake leather in off white.
First off we cleaned everything with T-röd. Then we used an awesome glue, completely free from any smell, which was called CascoFlex. We applied the glue on the wall and put up the insulation right away. After the insulation was stuck on the wall we had to work a bit to make sure all the air bubbles was pressed out. Took half an hour or so before the glue was completely dry and the result was great!
(Before we insulated the forepeak we made sure to paint the roof and parts of the hull sides.)
