Re: Tarting up the salon ceiling?

Not the least expensive fix, but a panelized overhead, made up of separate upholstered panels, each attached using industrial strength Velcro to wood furring strips is another option. Panels can be easily removed for access to the underside of the coach roof and access to salon wiring. Panels are essentially door-skin covered with padding and upholstery material.

Re: Tarting up the salon ceiling?

"Vast expanse of white fiberglass"??
Sounds like my "not quite so vast" almond overhead. Fully intend to place a few teak-ish battens across the top and call it good. As others have mentioned; easy clean, bright and make the cabin seem larger.
While darkish teak interiors are "salty",they seem (to me)to be almost cave-like and add a sense of confinement.Don't know about a flowered pattern overhead? Mightmake me a bit (more) nuts
*IF* I were to gut my interior, I'd definitely go bare-bones othe overhead with an off-white paint; hardware exposed and all.

Re: Tarting up the salon ceiling?

A cheap solution! Some carpet tile. A little insulation and some sound dampening.

Re: Tarting up the salon ceiling?

Shiva has a single formed GRP headliner... above it are wiring conduits. This is easy to clean... and believe me... if you cook... you will have every surface inside the boat covered with a light coating of kitchen "stuff".

I don't find the slick grp off white headliner unattractive... no more so than a white ceiling... I do find most of the panel headliners tooo busy looking... mostly sticky from grease and something else to replace at some point. Hell no!

An alternative might be to have the figure pole dancing around the mast.

Okay - I just spit my coffee all over the computer. Our bow berth has 6'8" headroom and I can't even reach the overhead lights. I've been wondering what to do with it, it's so cavernous. I'll get right on it and post pictures when finished!

Re: Tarting up the salon ceiling?

I replaced the overhead on my Irwin Citation with white wainscotting from home depot with teak strips to cover the joints at 3' intervals. It looks better than any production boat overhead I have ever seen with the exception of Cabo Rico.

Re: Tarting up the salon ceiling?

I removed the 3 layers of old ceilings, installed 3/4" furring strips so I could add insulation sheets and then finished with white T&G bead board. I am really happy with the results.

I have thought of doing this too.

Please post photos or link to photos of interior if you have them.

Re: Tarting up the salon ceiling?

Our overhead (1984). 1/8 plywood with 1/32 inch textured faux leather; teak strips. We had to take it all down and paint due to yellowing with its age. Looks great now. Applied with more tiny screws than you can believe into wood stringers glued & screwed to the cabin top.

Re: Tarting up the salon ceiling?

salon vs saloon

Actually, i suspect, either is correct. The word first appeared in print in French in the 18th century as salon, from the latin root for hall. But in the flexible spelling of the day soon often became saloon. Saloon and salon were used interchangeably in both French and English through the 19th century while saloon seems to have lost favor in French. For nautical purposes it referred to a large gathering room for first class passengers and in exactly the way we think of the French use of the word salon. But, with the US use of the word to mean a place for the working class to drink, salon returned to use, to distinguish it from such unsavory connotations. So currently, either is correct, and have both been used for over two centuries. Perhaps if you sail a Jeanneau or Beneteau salon is preferred.

Wait, for Stu, someone will figure out how many amps per hour are in the salon ceiling windows!
