Headliner questions? E-35.


I've been looking at a -75 Ericson 35. Overall the boat looks great, and I'm ready to jump at it. My question/concern involves the headliner on the interior of the boat. There is one section, above the vberth, where the headliner has drooped down a fair amount. I would estimate it to be less than an inch but it's noticeable.

The other area of concern is on the starboard side where one of the shrouds is connected to the deck. The plate on top of the deck is shaped similar to an upside down "T" and is backed by a plate on the interior. This interior plate has pulled through the headliner roughly 1/4", but appears to have been stopped by the deck from advancing any farther.

I sounded both areas of the deck along with many other places and it appears sound. Visually the chainplate(is that the proper term) looks great and so does the exterior area. My question is is how much of a gap is there generally between the headliner and the deck, and are the issues I'm describing normal/common?
