No, No, FullandBy, I think you have it wrong. They were not trying to beat you into the ground.

Rather, what the last few posts seem to be saying is that my earlier usage of "ceilings" is strictly speaking incorrect. The new definitions proferred seem to suggest that it is only the MATERIAL covering this area of the cabin that is known as "ceilings". So in our boat we have teak ceilings, but in your boat you have...not sure what to call it, maybe "carpet ceilings".

But that leaves the question of how to refer to this area of the cabin. All our boats have had "ceilings", so that is the terminolgy we've always used for that area. And it may be that with the advent of fibreglass hulls, that is the convention regardless of whether it is covered with wood trim (maybe that is what Jeff H was suggesting?). In any case, I still don't think we should call them "walls".

This is an interesting distinction that is being drawn, so I've learned something tonight. Thank you to those posters who called it to our attention.

hmmm interesting. So on a FG boat with no framework per se, such as ribs the ceiling terminology may not apply as it covers the framework not the inner/outer hull surface. They can't be called interior bulkheads because they don't partition anything. I agree that saying 'walls' does seem inappropriate. Maybe inner hull covering or perhaps the 'sides' to go along with the 'overhead' terminology.

cheers

While we're on the subject...

I have a rather challenging issue with my "ceilings" as well. The PO covered the fiberglass hull with ceramic tile. It's 12"x12" sheets of 1 inch tiles. Needless to say, keeping the grout in good order is challenging. The workmanship in the v-berth and salon is pretty good but the aft cabin is horrendous. We would like to remove it and use some type of wood strips as others have described here. However, the challenge is how to tackle this job. Anyone have any ideas? Has anybody seen this before? It was new to us.
thanks!

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 did look at cork tiles at one time. They are used in kitchens and baths.

I had a dream, I was sailing, I was happy, I was even smiling. Then I looked down and saw that I was on a multi-hull and woke up suddenly in a cold sweat.
