bulkhead covering

I've been toying with the idea of using roll cork (various widths, 2'/3'/4'). My career was in flooring (all kinds) and I've done this kind of thing. An adhesive I've though would be great is a tile product, "hydroment Ultraset". It's a rubbery adhesive and crack suppression membrane for stone and tile. It is anti-microbial and forever stuff. Cork is also anti-microbial. Never will have a mildew problem again. Also cork repels insects! Not to mention insulation value...I think it would be fantastic...and beautiful. So many boats have material on the bulkheads and overhead. The material holds moisture and mildews. Nasty.

What do you think?

Do you have a link or picture for what you are thinking of doing? I'm wanting to replace the vinyl in my boat at some point and I haven't decided what with.

Also, if you are gluing it in, how do you propose to remove it if you've got a leak or need to modify deck hardware.

Re: bulkhead covering

Here's one source I found; Jelinek Cork Group - Cork Rolls and Sheets
The adhesive is waterproofing and crack supressive. It's tough stuff and would be hard to scrape off, but why would you? What I planned to do at any fittings on the overhead was have a doubled "hatch" of the same material covering the heads which could be removed for access. And it would look god, you could have like a 2"x 4" raised area of cork with rounded edges as the hatch or covering the heads.
