we coated the foam ( forward ) and nothing went as
It is tough, but flexible; we need this because we don't want to line many areas below the floor for storage. Problem is a lack of circulation that would be beneath it. We considered many materials, but only plastic lattice would suffice, and it's full of holes! Anyway latex is good for this.
It must also protect the foam from water. As we have recently found out, closed cell doesn't mean water sealed, it just means air can't get through it easily. Nothing is totally sealed in the plastics world ie. watermaker membranes. Latex is water based ( funny enough ) but is very waterproof once cured.
It must not eat into the foam. Some stuff will eat the surface off of the foam and go all crispy.
thought we had matters in hand until Gena couldn't find
her latex paint sprayer. ( The nozzel is much larger to
allow thick stuff like latex thru ) So we went and bought
a Wagner airless paint sprayer.($140)
After an hour,
the compressor threw it's pulley. The shaft key had worn
off, probably because of the cold.
insult for the day was running out of latex ( because we
wasted so much ) before even starting the next cabin. Oh
well, the day was done anyway. Tomorrow, we will get some
more and try to make the air sprayer work better ( or
find the latex gun )
Latexed the foam in sail locker, and forward cabin
