Vee berth hull liner choices

Hello All,

Our vee berth has old carpet like hull liner on it which we would like to replace. We have successfully used the adhesive process to replace the hull liner in other parts of the boat, so I do not need help with that. However, we might want to consider a different look for the vee berth. Has anyone ever used a bead board or flexible plywood product on those curved surfaces? If so, how to attach on a fiberglass hull?

Any other ideas for a good looking application?

Glue vertical strips to the hull and screw horizontal strips to them. Worth googling Feeling Yachts (Kirie), certainly the older ones to see the look. The left gaps in between the horizontal strips to presumably aid ventilation.

Howdy!

This topic is one I have considered for a future boat. My personal preference is for a "light in tone" Vberth, and by that I mean I would prefer to see that area with lighter colored surfaces so any light that comes from the overhead hatch or prisms or light fixtures will light it well. Because of this, I prefer a plain white (painted) surface and overhead. I do not like dark varnished teak or dark carpet etc.

But, I also like wood boats too. Some have white painted surfaces (my preference) but others let the natural color of the wood show or have it stained or varnished.

The following video shows one approach that worked very well for the boat owner. He used low cost pine and it yields a very nice finished appearance and covers up a lot of typical headliner bumpiness. Note that he uses chlorine bleach to keep the surfaces clean and mildew free. After seeing his application of it, I will consider this in a future boat where it fits (depending upon the age and type of boat).
