Pulled out old foam back vinyl from berths...what now?

I have just stripped the old foam backed vinyl from the berths of my Ericson 32. After 30 years, the foam had disintigrated and there was evidence of mildew on the back of the vinyl.

I have some signs of water intrustion in the quarterberth, and during a recent storm I saw a few slow drips. I rebedded everything I could, but I still get a little water there.

What should I use as a hull liner? I like the look of the foam backed vinyl, and I also like the sound dampening properties, but I am concerned about mildew.

Any other ideas?

Thanks,
Chris
