I have no experience with fish houses (not alot of ice fishing in MO) But I have quite alot of "spray" foam experience. Will the foam be exposed or do you fill a cavity in the floor? Be very careful you know the expansion rate of the product you are going to use, It can easily deform your bottom if you overfill it.

I have heard too many problems with people using this. It really expands!

I did the underside of my with 2" rigid last summer, works well and no need to put anything over it, just leave it exposed to the world. This stuff will last a lot longer than anything you could possibly put over it.

I did my 8x16 house for under $100. Insulation, glue (PL300) and I used some plumbing straps to secure the insulation in case it ever comes unglued. Don't need to see a piece fly out from underneath it while on the highway!

I think it depends on which type you would use. My dad used to work on Schwans trucks that were damaged and sometimes they would have to re-spray the inside of the cooler with the stuff. I have often thought that would work great, but also know it probably would not be cheap. That stuff is durable though. You may want to check with a local truck repair shop to see what they say. All refridgerated refer trailers use this stuff to insulate. If you find a great deal, let me know - I will post if I do as well.

Great Stuff makes a MINIMAL expanding spray foam. It might get expensive though. I would think it would take a lot of cans to do an entire floor.

    • Shame on you for questioning  these great and wonderful plans.  Have you no faith?  Besides it's pure nonsense.  She made a lot of claims that her plans would not add anything to the deficit or debt   But we have heard those same claims many times over.  It's a mystery why people still believe that everything is going to be funded through just simply raising taxes on people making over $250,000 a year just because "their " candidate said so When a candidate comes up with more spending ideas and tells you that the "rich" are going to be the ones that are going to fund them ,what they really mean is they're  going to fund them through printing and borrowing. They just use accounting tricks and schemes to hide the cost but I prefer math   Personally, I prefer any candidate I were to support tell us how they're going to get us out of this fiscal mess we're in    
    • I agree he should not have been playing in the world cup.
    • Im going to run my Elite 5 on the dash also, soley as my gps. So that will free up space on the Garmin for the side imaging...Now I cant wait for spring to try out all the new toys haha....I've always heard Garmin were really nice I just never saw any of their units that had the features I wanted and were in my $$ range.. I think I'll be really happy with it...Im curious how the preloaded maps are that come with it (lakevu??) I think its called. It would be sweet if it would take my Garmin upper midwest fishing guide chip, but I doubt it does.
    • I don't think it will adhere to the surface very well under 50 degrees.  Especially on the bottom, it could create some real problems if it doesn't stick very well!
    • Sure wakes ya up when nodding off and that reel goes ZINGGGG!!
    • lol sugar coat it all you want Nick the Gophers are a 7th best team in the Big 10 period. They don't have a meaningful win this entire season and they didn't beat any other team in the big 10 with a winning record except for Northwestern who are 5-4 in conference play but 6-6 overall. That isnt trolling at all, its facts.   I hope they can recruit by selling a trip to the Holiday Bowl this year. Big things happening for the Gophers!
    • that sounds great!!!  they were good pictures too!
    • I use the same set up and I think it's the only way to go.
