Fish House Question

4 posts in this topic

I have a 14ft wheelhouse and it has oak panelling on the walls whitch is glued on with construction adhesive. The oak is peeling off around the floor by the holes from when the slush hits the wall from the auger. The oak is like paper that is attached to the panelling. I was going to put fiberglass board on the walls as high as my counter all the way around the fish house because it is water proof. Then where the fiberglass board stops I was going to finish it off whith chair rail molding. What I was wondring is will I have a moisture problem inbetween the panelling?

As long as the panelling is dry when you put the fiberglass over it, I don't think you would have any problems. I think your idea will work great!

I'm not a fan of adding a layer to any repair to begin with. Plus anytime you cover something up like that you risk trapping moister. So don't allow the moister to get there.

In this case the seams and corners need to be sealed.

You will need to stop capillary action as well. That would be the bottom of the paneling at the floor getting wet and pulling the water up into the cells of the paneling.

When you put the new panel on I'd use a waterproof adhesive and trowel it instead of a bead. Just check that the adhesive is compatible with the new panel.

Something you might not have considered, if the damage is just to the bottom to the paneling you could use a vinyl base instead of covering it all up.

green_sleeper, When I worked in the mobile home park, we'ed often have to repair the showers in the rental units. We'd smooth out the walls as best we could, coat them with vinyl floor covering cement and then put a floor covering on them. It worked great and held up very well. In your fish house it would have enough flexability that it would'nt tear as the house flexes. I'd question using fiberglass, that may crack or shatter in the cold when it's being towed. Phred52

    • New ABC / WaPo Poll Shows Drop In Trump Favorability Courtesy Of Aggressive "Oversamples" Jan 17, 2017 3:42 PM   In the month leading up to the election on November 8th, we repeatedly demonstrated how the mainstream media polls from the likes of ABC/Washington Post, CNN and Reuters repeatedly manipulated their poll samples to engineer their desired results, namely a large Hillary Clinton lead (see "New Podesta Email Exposes Playbook For Rigging Polls Through 'Oversamples'" and "ABC/Wapo Effectively Admit To Poll Tampering As Hillary's "Lead" Shrinks To 2-Points").  In fact, just 16 days prior to the election an ABC/Wapo poll showed a 12-point lead for Hillary, a result that obviously turned out to be embarrassingly wrong for the pollsters. But, proving they still got it, ABC/Washington Post and CNN are out with a pair of polls on Trump's favorability this morning that sport some of the most egregious "oversamples" we've seen.  The ABC/Wapo poll showed an 8-point sampling margin for Democrats with only 23% of the results taken from Republicans...   ...while the CNN poll showed a similar 8-point advantage for Democrats with only 24% of respondents identifying as Republicans.
