Hi All
I am planning to tile onto cement board, which I have screwed (with a 10mm air gap) to a blockboard bulkhead on our narrowboat. There are extremes of heat and cold and some vibration. Can anyone recommend an adhesive and grout?
Thanks a lot.

You want to use a standard cement based adhesive with an additive to make it flexible. That should also help with the extreme differences heat-wise.

Wait for the lads to recommend which one and whatnot though I'd hate to get that wrong.

Vitcas make a special flexible adhesive and grout especially for this.. not cheap but made for the job.... The boat safety regulations actually say that you need to use vermiculite board instead of cement board...I got overexcited that I knew the answer to something and didn't actually look at the date oopse :D
