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.
Dictated, but not read.
