Yellow 70's Paneling

The 76 Hunter 30 that i'm working on buying has this horrible yellow paneling in on the cabin walls/around the galley...Has anybody attempted to paint over this or is there a better way to replace it?

Re: Yellow 70's Paneling

What is the outside layer of the paneling made of?

You can paint anything almost with the proper prep , primer and a decent spray gun.

Painting a slick surface like paneling with a brush will generally give poor results.

The prep and taping are time consuming but can be done in stages.

The good news is the painting itself goes very fast.


Vinyl Coverings are another option.


Actual replacement of the paneling would be time consuming , costly and unnecessary imho

Re: Yellow 70's Paneling

There are thick wallpapers for covering panelling, but I dunno I'd try it on a boat.

I had a 1976 Hunter 27 with the same material. It is Formica phenolic laminate. If you sand it well paint should hold fairly well.

Re: Yellow 70's Paneling

Rustoleum makes paint specifically for rejuvenating formica-type laminates. I think you can get it tinted any color you want. Lowes's, Home Depot, etc all stock it.

Re: Yellow 70's Paneling

Sand it to key the surface, prime with Zinsser B-I-N alcohol based primer (specifically for plastic laminates) and then paint with whatever you choose.

Suff it then reskin it with cherry veneer, use only weldwood contact cement in the red can, then finish it off with pecan satin wood finish.
