    Hello , i like to have some advise

    Boat : aluminum catamaran
    Project : Make A Wood roof (wood , isolation, and wood)

    For me if think it is better to keep the aluminium structure of the boat.
    like to insert a layer of wood , isolation and layer of wood on the top

    What to you think, is that possible ?
    How to attach the material to each other ?

    What do you think , thank you
    what you will do ?

    To me putting wood over aluminum adds maintenance and cost. For insulation/isolation beside the appropriate paint, lately I have been coating it with a 100% silicon paint inside and out. It makes a huge difference in temperature and sound transmission.
