Allmand 31 Headliner Replacement

I am in the process of purchasing an Allmand 31. It is in need of a new headliner or cleaning. I am checking to see if anyone has experience with replacing one. If so, where did you find one. How much work is it? How much will it cost? etc. etc.

My son came up with the idea of painting it with a heavy vinyl paint he got at a hardware store. He did something like this before on an old Ericson and from the pictures it looked pretty good. I never saw it personally.

Any suggestions?

Or, if you plan on cruising longer term or living aboard, you can attach furring strips to the underside of the cabintop and build it out using thin marine plywood or bead board, and then use the space between for insulation and running wiring.

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.
