My liner is attached to stringers and is a textured burlap, but in vinyl. It is more of a hanging ceiling system, therefore I do not hope to have to scrape anything off the interior deck
or coach roof/hull. Just carefully debung wood trim and unscrew from stringers, but I will give it a coat of mildew resistant cabin paint
prior to hanging the marine
The actual interior cabin
vinyl that will be showing is a bit on the pricey side so I do not want to muck it up with inferior adhesive. The texture is a nice accent to the wood interior. It is my home so I do not mind the extra price
for the aesthetics if I can get enough years out of it. Plus the vinyl is mildew resistant, washable and such.
The edges are all capped with wood trim, but even so it is starting to peel in some places where moisture from deck
fittings needing rebedding have wept or from condensation
buildup were pieces glued together with open seams instead of being one piece. And some places it looks like the tannin from the ply has leached through into the vinyl. Also PO added new stain to trim and was not careful on edges and it bled onto vinyl.
So all will come down, rebed deck fittings, add access/ventilation ports
at fittings, decide which insulation
will best fit needs between deck and ply and put all new in place.
I actually had the liner in one of my older vehicles start to peel at window edges recently and used Elmer's Adhesive spray which sprays purple to show coat then disappears to clear. Messy and is holding, but is not long enough of a timeframe for me to decide if that will be best answer for boat. Hence the inquiry for durability of adhesives here. The point of purchase
does not have a clue as they are interior design firm for homes and businesses without track record
in marine setting to give qualified advice. Nor does manufacturer. Doubtful most of the adhesives they use are designed for repeated and extreme temp cycles on their product as the 4 season climate the boat endures.
I should probably be inquiring about best thin insulation
too before installation
