Headliner ID ????

I am trying to identify the headliners used here. They are made from wood. Only the one side is white. Most of the boat was refitted with it about 7 years ago and they seem to have held up very well. I am about to tackle the V-berth and would like to finish out the ceiling with the same stuff.

Re: Headliner ID ????

I really cant tell from the pic. But there is a plywood product than comes with a thin white laminate on one side (much thinner than formica... almost like paint) Is that it? I cant remember what it's called. I have some rems here that are thick. Yours is likely 1/4"? or less... Not necessarily a marine product.

That is a great description of what I have... yes it is pretty thin and it seems like a laminate and not a paint...

Headliner ID ????

There was something in a recent issue of Good Old Boat about replacing a headliner. I gather it was like a Formica or plastic material It was thin, flexible and one side was gloss, the other side had a slightly pebbly texture. The author said he got it at either Home Depot or Lowes.

Sorry I don't remember more but the issue came out one or two months ago.

I have a couple sheets of that. I don't know what it actually is but about 1/4 thick and as you describe, very flexible and looks impervious to water. The pebbley side is gloss on mine.

Re: Headliner ID ????

I think you are looking for 1/4 luan plywood with Melamine on one side.
