The new tarp on the wheelhouse roof is already proving a great improvement. The added insulation of natural wool (underfelt) applied directly under the tarp was also a great suggestion, thanks to the DBA forum.
The foredeck area also received similar treatment. After some 16 years one learns the rule with barges, few things come cheap. Buying quality brings the peace of mind of “fit an forget” well lets hope so.
The supplier “Essex Tarps” matched the roof paint colour to perfection retaining colour contenuity.
