Ice Castle dripping!

Recommended Posts

I've got a 2013 Ice Castle Walleye Tracker with the skylight in the ceiling. Is anybody else getting a lot of water dripping down from all the condensation these things form? Im afraid its going to seep into the roof and cause big problems.

I have an Ice castle and love it. I will say though when I saw these Sky lights they started to put in the first thing I thought was how long it would break from hail? Second thing was how much was it going to Condensate?

I hope you are able to resolve your problem.

Could you seal the base of the sky light with 3M window film? This would keep it insulated with air and still allow the light in.

When my buddy picked his up, I was like oh yeah skylight awesome idea. Gets more light in. Problems with a rain shower. frown

Skylights are the worst possible thing to put in a fish house. With all the heating and cooling it will leak. I had one in my perm @ Mille Lacs and it shortened it to only lasting for 20 seasons because of the water damage.

The first time I saw the skylight, I thought "there's gonna be a problem". They cause enough problems in regular houses, kept at 70 degrees year round. A fish house with high humidity, heating & cooling cycles of 100 degrees, combined with the fiberglass insulation, and cheap interior paneling is going to be a big problem long term. On paper, or from a YouTube video it sounds cool, but I wouldn't touch it.

What size is the sky light?

Is there away you can cut out a piece of foam and insert it into the sky light?

This would insulate the sky light and keep the heat away from the sky light and prevent the condensation.

I know you can buy a 12x12 pillow at RV dealers to block the light from the roof vents.
