Wall covering

I have to replace the fabric that covers the walls and ceiling of the aft cabin as it is coming off and cannot be re-glued. I'm wondering about using a vinyl covering for this. Does anyone have any advice as to the best material to use?

My suggestion is to glue on thin battens and then mount a false "ceiling" screwed onto the battens. It adds more insulation and is easier to maintain.

Also, you can run conduit for wiring above the false overhead.

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.

We used white marine vinyl to replace the burlap & carpet walls and sagging headliner in Wu-Wei. HUGE difference! We can wipe the walls clean! Total cost was around $500, and we did it ourselves- no easy feat, and something I never want to do again!

I'll second the Seagull's "ceiling" plan - looks very nautical, provides some ventilation, - its the way to go.
