Hatching a Plan II

With cool weather drawing in, and the prospect of lighting the stove getting closer, we took a look at our living room and decided we needed to insulate from the top, downwards.
The highest point in the living room is the hatch at the top of the stairs, and this is where all the heat from the stove ends up. It made sense to get this area well insulated before winter.

Steve pulled down the tongue and groove panels...

...and the old rockwool...

..and the curved ceiling section that we had put in when we first moved aboard. It had worked well to stop the indoor raining, but wasn't quite keeping all that lovely heat from the stove inside.

I welded yet more brackets in place, and Steve did what he does best. Battens and Celotex.
