Wallpaper stuff

I have no idea what this weird wallpaperstuff is that's covering the walls of the inside of my cabin (O'Day 25 1976), but it's cracking and falling apart. Some of it all I have to to do is tap or touch it and it breaks.

1) What IS this stuff?
2) How/where do I replace it (or get something better)? Caulking is pointless.

Hull liner.. headliner that was glued to the insides. Carpet makes a nice replacement. not hard to do either. you do need the right adhesive though.

I don't have to worry about it being waterproof? Carpet seems like it would absorb water and get stank. It would be nicer than this crap though.

That vinyl is old. Your only choice is to replace it. There are a few options, I would never suggest carpet, but to each his own.

Replace with either new vinyl, wood (plywood), wood slats or maybe fiberglass pieces that you can mold into shapes. There are quite a few articles around and on the subject. For example though, I removed mine not too long ago and am replacing it with vinyl covered 1/8" plywood. A real improvement. Not a project for the faint of heart though.. so keep that in mind when you get started.

another thought is wood veneer that comes in sheets. But the surface would have to be pretty smooth after peeling off the existing vinyl.

THe surface under is not smooth. It's rather gross. Is that what you mean by not for the faint of heart?

My O 30 still has the original carpet on the walls it was glued. it was a low quality tweed like weave. something like indoor outdoor carpet. anything non porous will trap moisture.
