I'm afraid to post now ...

I'm Dutch, my English is mostly self-taught and I don't know all the correct English terms for the many, many parts, bits and pieces of my boat ...

Please, please be gentle when I say "walls" or "ceiling" -- I'm trying my best
The same goes for "choose" versus "chose" etc - I'm just happy I usually don't mix up your and you're and their / there / they're etc

Having said that: I'll see if I can look up all the correct terms before I post what I was going to - never hurts to learn a few more words and terms

My first language is Texan, so your English is better than mine already.

Re: Tarting up the salon ceiling?

My boat was built in1981 with western red cedar and since I had no say in the matter and since fully 1/3 of the interior is of aforementioned red cedar, does that mean I have to cancel my plans for Mexico? The only place my boat doesn't have red cedar is on that thing hanging over my head, the other side of which I call the deck. I think we'll have to take our chances.

Hello Jim; Western Red cedar does have its place in the boating world, but more often in light craft such as Canoes, Kayak's and Dinghy's and yes, it can also be used for trim inside a boat although personally, I don't care for the smell of Red Cedar. I also know of a raceboat that is planked with red cedar but it also is epoxied on all surfaces to prevent water absorption.
For many years Red Cedar was considered "junk wood" by the lumber industry and left to rot on the forest floor. It is what we call a "dirty wood" to work with as the sawdust is so light it will cover every thing in the shop if one does not have a good dust collection system.
These days where I live, it's more often used for Garden Fences, Garden Furniture and Gazebos etc due to its excellent resistance to rot however, it does not hold fastener's well. Nails will pop out, and wood screws will become loose in a very short time.
Enjoy your Red Cedar boat Jim, she sounds like a real beauty.

Re: Tarting up the salon ceiling?

Another quality of red cedar is that it is fairly soft, and so not well suited for cabinetwork.
