I am in the process of replacing my headliner and am using FRP Fiberglass reinforced panels. It is easy to work with.

I've seen this done on at least one other boat and it looked quite good.

Here's a link to how it is done with pics. It is about halfway down the page.

brian,
thanks for the reply. i think that for now i will leave the current headliner in place and support it with some teak bows that follow the curve of the cabin top inside. that should hold up this sagging liner . the liner itself is not torn but one zipper is broken. i am considering next year taking out the liner and putting in a slightly "dropped ceiling" from 1""stringers" where any slat could be easily removed for servicing wires or fastenings. you're right though, it needs to be covered in some way.

If it gets wet it will have to be replaced, but then I don't have any leaks in the deck. It is covered with a glossy white finish on one side and easy to work with. I used the old ones as a template and I also add some insulation when we replaced it, boat seems a little more cozy now and has a new headliner
I did pretty much the same thing, but used the white beadboard paneling made from pretty much the same masonite material.
