Re: Send me your ceilings!

Can't post pics to the forum via mobile. When I get wifi I'll put the computer and post em. Make a fake name, junk email, etc...perhaps

Re: Send me your ceilings!

We have vinyl, with long zippers for access in main salon and v-berth. The deck ceiling( not cabin top) are panels wrapped with the same type color vinyl. I posted a pic of the area around the hatch, we are in the process of putting new hatches in


I will try to post the under deck side panels too. These panels are screwed in.. I plan on laying some thin reflectex, between panel and under deck surface.

Hope that helps

Under deck panels. If this is the type of ceiling you are thinking of I can shoot better pictures.

All this is by way of explaining that the attached pictures are one of two ways I would like our overheads to LOOK when I have time. Either sticking with the exposed beams to keep the simplicity or putting in a liner and accepting the risks that entails in an older boat. Unfortunately that "Time" word is the problem right now.

The exposed beams are from a Halvorsen cruiser and the lined overheads are from a Southcoast 36.
definitely leave the exposed beams, they really look nice when done well....

Here are some quick pics of Nirvana's ceiling. I tore the old stretched vinyl headliner down and have been replacing with the vinyl beadboard from home depot, comes in 96x8 inch pieces. I like it because it's easy to work with, you cut it with a razor blade, and you can do it a little at a time. You can take it down if you need to. really easy to clean as well. I'm about to start on the forward birth next.

That looks great. I would imagine it is pretty cheap too huh? The previous owner sort of tried to do that. He used a similar product from Lowes. It is a plastic product that looks stippled, for lack of a better word. You have seen it on the insides of many rest stop bathrooms and campers. The problem was in the execution it could have looked nice like yours but he just didn't have the hand for it. I'm hoping to improve on it.

Well each pack of four or five boards as around 25 bucks. I'm not splicing the boards anywhere so I'm using more. It's all relative but by the time I have to entire boat done I will have a few hundred invested at least. But I tend to justify everything I spend on the boat with "I'm doing it myself so it's at least 50% less than if I were paying for it to be done". If I weren't working on the boat I'd just be laying about eating and watching football...who needs that!
