September 2008 --
A few years ago, when I installed the windlass,
I removed the old grungy headliner
in the V Berth.
I'd always thought I'd put up something new, and have a box to cover the windlass.
However, the V Berth has always been stuffed with sails and stuff, and the liner never got to the top of my list.
I put a couple of layers of this foil covered bubble wrap between it and the deck.
Insulation can't hurt.
So, now that I'm in a rush to get things done so I can move aboard, I just whipped this up out of Sunbrella.
I figure the V Berth will probably still be packed with sails and stuff, anyway.
