Westerly Centaur Headliner

I am planning on planking my headliner as well as the quaterberth sides and v-berth sides with tongue and groove strips. Can anyone tell me the best place to obtain the materials I,ll need to complete this project. Could I use cedar strips to save over the cost of teak? Rick R

Rick, you may wish to post a message on the sailnet Westerly list-server. I believe there are folks who have done just what you have are thinking of.

Rick:

I planked our v-berth. We thought about tongue and groove, but in the end it ends up being a lot of weight, and expense. Everything we found for the projet at hardware stores. We bonded four vertical running pieces of plywood, 2-3 inches wide along the sides of the hull. We then used a product known as liquid nails to affix insulation (ours was an name that escapes me now--a cross between aluminum foil and bubble wrap available at large hardware stores). We hemmed and hawed alot about the possibility of using cedar, or poplar, but ended up going with 1/4-inch pine lattice, which once the edges are shaped with a sander and is varnished, looks fine. Brass screws completed the project.
Good luck and sign up for the Westerly email disussion list,

Mark ... thanks for the info regarding the headliner ... have sent more info on my project to the westerly list....sounds like you''ve done some extensive sailing in the centaur... "Levara" has a lot of sea miles under its keel and I thought all of it was in the Med-Atlantic-Carribean but yesturday as I was removing the Onancock Va. lettering from the stern, I could make out former lettering that said San Francisco so I''m thinking this boat may have more experience than I previously thought.... if only it could talk...Rick R
