My apoligies

I'm sorry Sailormann, JohnRPollard, and Sailingdog for the misunderstnding. I read JohnRPollard's reply wrong. As I have been around a lot of boats in my lifetime I had never heard of walls being called ceilings before. I am the confused one.
PS: Thanks for clearing things up as I was not trying to be a know it all.

No worries... lots of weird terminology that isn't normally used, especially by people who don't bleed salt water...

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.

Great recommendations. Thanks everyone. I will definitely check out the GOB article.

I've been on and around my boats my whole life and my father is a deep sea captain, and neither of us has ever heard the sides of the interior hull to be called the ceiling. I guess we aren't refined enough But good to know the proper terminology even if it is a little confusing. The ceiling must have originated after some crossing around the horn and suffering continual blow downs.

I think I will not be doing the tongue and groove but butt edges instead with a 1/8" gap between each board.

Lancer, great job. That is something like I want. I would love to see some other pics if anyone has them of their planked ceilings.

cheers

FullandBy,

This is a very funny thing, because where you have never heard them called "ceilings", I have almost never heard them called "walls". At least we all understand each other, and that's what matters.

Here is a photo of our ceilings (hopefully -- this is my first attempt at posting a photo). I cropped this from another photo, so the subject wasn't intended to be the ceilings, that's why it's a lousy shot. But it's all I've got...

JRP-

Very nice. But I would have used a lighter color wood... that's a bit dark...and probably makes the cabin seem smaller.

John,
Beautiful details - and to anyone who appreciates the natural teak finish, it's not dark at all. Our entire boat's ceilings, casework and soles are covered with teak, with the only relief being teak battened headliners and selected countertops.



View above is of the aft cabin with ensuite head. In typical Northern European fashion though, the sink is outside of the toilet/shower compartment - under a hinged teak countertop.

Lancer,

Thanks, so do I . Solid bronze, through-bolted. Heavy, though.

Sailing Dog,

A PO applied that stain. I would have gone with something lighter. But our boat has an open interior, so the darker shade feels rich, and most guests comment on how large our cabin feels for a 30 footer.

True Blue,

Very nice! That's my style!!

Sapperwhite has a spectacular aura about Sapperwhite has a spectacular aura about Sapperwhite has a spectacular aura about
My Lake Erie sailing boat buddy Dale Tanski has a new article in a recent Good Old Boat about rebuilding the ceilings in his Pearson 365. They used to be thin, cruddy little strips spaced apart on a glass panel. He redid them with solid planking of some exotic African hardwood, came out really nice for very few boat bucks. He may have not even had to spend a whole boat buck on them (I think it was about 70$ total). He is a pretty slick woodworker though, so you might need some skill to tackle that type of job and come out with a professional look.


EDIT: As stated about 15 times in the thread, thats what I get for not reading the whole thing. The guy that did the article, Dale, had his boat next to mine over the winter (or rather I moved in next to him). I kept looking at his boat and going " I know that boat from somewhere". He has been doing a series with GOB on her rebuild. I had even commissioned him to rebuild my bowsprit and samson posts, and he did a fantastic job. He is a really good guy.
