Ripping out old linoleum on ceiling, replace with????

I am in the process of redoing my "new to me" boat. In the cabin, the ceilings (walls) have old faded linoleum on them that is peeling, cracking, & supporting lots of mildew, so I am tearing this out. It seems the linoleum was put up with contact cement, so looks like painting the surface is out of the question as the sanding would be impractical. Any ideas of something I could install instead of the linoleum? There is a lot of space to cover (all ceilings/walls on a 23 foot boat, cabin & v Berth), so Teak is beyond the budget on this. If money were no object, I would go for teak, but unfortunately I live in a reality which precludes that option.

I feel sorry for you. It will take some time and hard work to get it all out. Look up "linoleum removal" on google.

I wouldn't put anything back except maybe some paint. Or if the area isn't smooth I would smooth it with some sort of fiberglass and then paint.

Make sure you get plenty of ventilation when working in there. And if you use any flammable liquids to remove the glue you need an explosion proof fan.

Removing the linoleum was a piece of cake, I simply peeled it off of the hull, but therein lies the problem. After removing the linoleum, he area underneath is far from smooth and I have a feeling sanding that contact cement smooth will be next to impossible. So, painting is out unless I can find a way of smoothing it out.

red cedar though soft can give you the look of teak/mahogany. It's brittle though.. you must drill holes for fastners. Teak veneer plywood isn't all that terribly priced.. Or you could get teak veneer and glue it to plywood. Also you could carpet the hull and use headliner for the ceiling.

Red Cedar...hadn't thought of that. Tongue and Groove or slats with space in between? That could look really nice; pretty easy installation as well; just epoxy in some vertical pieces of wood to screw into and off to the races. I'll have to check that out.

You could put down thin marine plywood and epoxy teak veneer on top of it (don't use contact cement, it will bubble)
Or, put vinyl over it with some foam padding, maybe accent it with teak strips
Or nice wallpaper over the marine plywood
Or there is really thin carpet-looking material a lot of boat builders use for this purpose.
Not only is teak expensive, its a lot of work to fit and trim on all the curved surfaces

We re-did ours on our 30' boat with white marine vinyl (which we got on eBay cheaper than at local reupolstery places). (The original headliner looked hideous, so we removed it by scraping and a lot of sanding.) I will not lie- it is a total PAIN in the A** to put up a new vinyl headliner, but the end result was AWESOME!!! It is accented with teak strips, too, and was worth the effort. Just remember, wear a hat or doo-rag when removing the old stuff and putting up the new.
