Question Headliner suggestions

I would like to hear any recommendations of a material suitable for replacing the headliner of our boat, which is really looking old. Although this is not a priority on the "to do" list I was hoping it could be a fairly straight forward project. What about MDF bead board or similar from Home Depot Stop Laughing

Thoughts?

PS...I have searched sailnet but could not find much relevant?

I worked on a boat that had doorskin (1/4" thin, thin ply) cut to fit, filled and faired on one side and Awl-Gripped.
Some of that industrial type velcro and they were good.
They were 10 years old when they got repainted and other than a crack here or there they'll be around for another long while.

So that's not too far off of where you were headed is it? Either way you'll need some doorskin cut into 2" strips and a glue gun to make up some templates to copy onto what you'll be cutting.

Thanks for the tip!

Ummmm, I was hoping to use the current headliner as the template.

I think thin plywood, with possibly a laminate applied, would be better than MDF, which I think is far less tolerant of getting wet and humidity.

You know what the first rule of sailing is? ...Love. You can learn all the math in the 'verse, but you take
a boat to the sea you don't love, she'll shake you off just as sure as the turning of the worlds. Love keeps
her going when she oughta fall down, tells you she's hurting 'fore she keens. Makes her a home.

I have a weird looking fuzzy cloth and I was thinking of replacing it with a low pile indoorin outdoor carpet or even marine carpet. I like the carpet idea because it would add a little insulation. Btw, they do sell Bead broard in 1/4 thick pine boards. I used them to build s bar. attaching the bead broad would be a problem, I think.

I replaced the headliner on my last boat. I used a product that I can't remember the name of, but I purchased from Home Depot. It comes in 4x8 sheets and is a fiberglass type paneling. Comes in white. Is semiflexible and was very easy to work with.
Being fiberglass, you don't have to worry about it getting wet and just have to wipe it off if it gets dirty.
Look for it in the paneling area at Home Depot.
They also sell trim pieces for it too.

Freesail-

Don't use indoor/outdoor carpet... it will collect dust and hold salt and eventually grow a fair collection of mold... You're really better off with a solid surface, that will be easier to clean and such.

I would also highly recommend setting it off from the overhead using furring strips of some sort, so you'll have a bit of space to run wires, insulation, and such. You'll lose a bit of headroom, but it will make the boat quieter and warmer in cold weather/cooler in hot weather.

Here is a link that shows what I did to my Jeanneau headliner, as least the aft cabin and the head. I had the foam backed vinyl liner common in mid 80s boats. The head area replacement pics show the true before vs teh aft cabin.

So far the whole project for front V, rear aft cabins, and head have cost about $1000 plus my time. I have not done the main cabin as of yet, that will hopefully be this summer after a haulout, new raymarine tri kit, ie wind, new knot meter and depth sounder. I will need to remove the cabin headliner to install wiring for the wind, so plan to do that headliner replacement then.

This link should take you to the aft cabin page, then at the bottom is a link to the head headliner replacement.
