I've been on C&C 33s, however, which are quite similar dimensionally to my boat and do have liners, and I've bumped my head. I'm just over six feet tall or 183 cm.

The wiring on the Viking 33 is pretty minimal, and the runs are inside the cabinetry port and starboard, with the exception of the saloon light, which is fed from a terminal strip in the head, the same strip that feeds the mast lights.

One thing to mention: The cabin is painted with the exception of the area behind that small single "arch" of headliner. Beneath there it is straight glassed over balsa-core, clearly visible in a sort of parquet pattern. It's likely this is what you'll find beneath yours.
