Insulating portholes to keep the cold at bay in the winter



Be the first to comment

What is the issue?
If you live aboard a boat in the winter it is always a battle to limit the heat loss that large portals and windows leak out of a yacht. 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 give an extra measure of protection.
