    Spray foam insulation

    Hope I didn't miss this in my search of the forum, but does anyone have info or experience with spray foam insulation?

    I am looking at this, what do you think?

    Thought I would toss this out there.

    When I did my boat I gave a lot of consideration to various methods of insulating it. In the end I just ended up using the pink r-board that is available at any hardware store. My walls are an inch @ half so I purchased it at that thickness in 4 x 8 panels and ripped it to width in a table saw. It actually went in pretty fast and neat with very few gaps. The few gaps were addressed with expanded canned foam normally used around doors or windows. So far it's worked great for us we have virtually no heat gain though our walls even in direct summer sun.
