Mounting storage compartments inside your cabin?

I have a Mac 25 which is practucally bare inside the cabin when in comes to customization. I am wanting to add an assortment of wooden "furniture peices?" on the walls of my cabin(firstly, the wall between the cockit and the aft cabin right as you enter the cabin on each side).

I was wondering how to attach something to this without messing up the fiberglass or making hole in it to show from the outside. Things like a place to store magazines, paper plates, cups, napkins, small things like that. Glue? Velcro? Screws? Other?

Also on the ceiling of the cabin but I dont think I should be punturing the outer side.

Thanks for any replies.

If you get a chance pick up a copy of "This Old Boat" by Don Casey. It will give you a lot of information on setting up interior furniture. The method will depend on the item being stowed, its weight and size, and the bulkhead you wand to fix it to. Consider that whatever you stick to the boat may eventually be taken out by you or the next owner. In the past I have used all of the methods you list above.
