Question Interior refit

My cal 28 has old texturized foam backed cloth covering many areas of the bulkheads. I plan to strip it off and replace it with Nautolex Capitano vinyl. What kind of adhesive would be recommended? Any other hints or comments would be appreciated

I would probably use regular LePage's contact cement (if the surfaces were clean and smooth). It holds well but it's not impossible to remove the covering eventually when it's worn.

If you're doing what I did a few yrs back, here is what I did, there is also a link to how I redid the head too. I also did the front V-berth and salon with similar techniques etc.

Not sure if this is what you have in mind, but hopefully it helps in the how to etc.

I had the pleasure of doing this wonderful task on my little Virgo Voyager in the UK. Pulling the old lining off was horrendously messy. A lot of the foam had deteriorated to the point where it came off as a nasty dust (proper face mask essential), but also lumps of it remained stuck to the fibreglass and were a real pain to remove (heavy sanding required in places). I used contact adhesive (Evo-Stik in the UK which I imagine is similar to that being recommended in this thread). The main problem is the "instant grab" nature of this stuff, once you have coated both surfaces and let them dry to a tacky consistency, which means that you have to get the positioning correct first time. If anyone has an alternative which gives a bit of room for adjustment after the surfaces are in contact, then I would go for that.....

Having said that, the final result looked real good.

I must go down to the sea again, to the lonely sea and the sky - I left my shoes and socks there, I wonder if they're dry?

Here's an idea. A the owners of one of our sisterships took their old headliner out and used it as a pattern to cut formica. They then put that in place and held it there with furring strips of teak screwed in place. I have photos but for some reason can't upload them.

We used Synergistecs 240 carpet adhesive[available at West Marine and various other boat suppliers] Its solvent free and low odor. It also is easier to work with than contact adhesive. It's applied with a notched trowel and allows some leaway in positioning [unlike contact adhesive] Removing the old contact adhesive was a nightmare which we didn't want to risk having to repeat. We had to carefully use a heat gun and scraper [to remove the major globs]and then sand.After 3 years the new hull liner is still holding firm.
