Insulating portholes to keep the cold at bay in the winter

What is the issue?
If you live aboard a boat in the winter it is always a battle to limit the heat loss that leaks out of a yacht through large portals and windows. Likewise, a lot of heat comes in through the portals in the height of summer and this can be uncomfortable.


Why address this?
Keeping a boat warm in winter is a challenge and effective insulation will help no end.


How to address this?
Hanging curtains helps but also making and attaching snap-on insulated panels gives an extra measure of protection.
