    That would be great, maybe we could have it in your area. The admiral and I are planning a trip to your area in about two years so we'll have to look you up then.

    American?

    Yes, I am a real American, an American searching fro the 51st star. Whatever this place is now is not the America we all knew. Many people are upset with this nation now. I think that is why people are buying up old boats to float away as boatpeople to a land that understands the meaning of obscure words like "Please" and "Thank You," two words that are now considered a foreign language in USA. The American boat person is a growing segment of the population.. floating to Panama, Costa Rica, Singapore and wherever else peace can be found... perhaps it is Sweeden or Norway.. places I would love to "sea."

    Cabin isolate

    while I wait for parts that I ordered from U.S., I began to isolate the cabin, I have isolated the Armaflex there is no condensation, and it was much quieter in the cabin

    Hey thanks ceiling is hard pressed masonite that is a very common building material in Sweden and the panels are approved for the bathroom as you know, built Chris Craft cabin ceilings in three parts, I put discs on the floor in my boat house and plotted them on the back of them new panels then I sawed them with a jigsaw then it was easy to mount them, I think myself that it was a good result and I have not had any problems with moisture, it is three years since I got coachroof hope you understand my bad English.
