Sagging headlining


On a Westerly there is headlining that is sagging, It is quite a heavy material and we have tried several adhesives and they temporarily work and then begin to sag again. Has anyone else had the same problem and have found an adhesive that works?

The headlining is sticking to foam that is stuck to the wall of the boat.

Thanks very much for any help,

Auto parts stores have a headliner adhesive in spray cans. I have used it to recondition used car headliners satisfactorily

Re: Sagging headlining

There are many threads on here about repairing the headliners on boats. Most seem to suggest that, eventually, the material sags so much that it isn't worth trying to re-glue it. You're better off tearing it all out and putting in a clean, new replacement.

SNer blt2ski has done this with his Jeanneau, check out his profile/blog, he's posted about it before. Did a great job.
