Any suggestions as to which fabric to use and where to locate it? Does anyone offer a fabric kit or paper patterns for our boat?

Any suggestions welcome.
We redid the hull lining in the V-berth in our Hunter, using vinyl headliner from Joann Fabrics and 3M contact adhesive. Because the fiberglass was pretty rough we used some thin foam against the fiberglass prior to putting the headliner on. Worked ok and provided an easy to clean surface that resisted mildew.

Seems to me the stuff we used was labeled "automotive", but worked just fine in the boat.
