Headliner

I have a 06 Hunter 36. Does anyone know how the headliners come down? I am adding hardware to the cabin top for a spinnaker and changing out the way the running rig comes back to the cockpit.

Why don't you write in to Al Fooks at Hunter Marine (afooks@huntermarine.com). He should be able to tell you how to remove the liners. I believe yours is the soft type without any screws.

Melissa, did you contact Hunter and were they helpful? Just wondering if they were easy to deal with and you got your answer to taking down the headliner.

Well, I finally contacted Hunter. I went to the Annapolis boat show to see if there was anyone there that could answer my questions but the Tech guys weren't there.
How I finally contact Hunter was through Lewmar. I needed the stand-up blocks with spring attached for the new running rigging that I was putting in place. No commercial distribution store carried what I needed, mainly the spring at the base of the mast. I was pulling the hair out of head trying to come up with this spring that cost .99 cents. The folks at Lewmar were great, the maker of the blocks currently on the boat. They didn't make the spring. So they contact the production manager at Hunter who in less than 2 minutes contact me on the phone. He said the spring was custom made by Sheldon. I asked if I could buy them and he said yes. I asked how much it was and he told me .99 cents. I asked how much the whole package of block's would cost and he told me $18. That was 50% off the lowest price I have seen on commercial website. I was shocked to say the least. So I bought two. I than said I have a few questions about the boat, i.e. the liner. He patched me to the customer service guys where I spent the next 1/2 on the phone with them. They answered all my questions I had in the boat. They walked me through the process of pulling the headliner off and back on.
I cannot say enough about the great service I received by Lewmar and Hunter. I didn't think a lone sailor using their products would give me the time of day. The production manager at Hunter called me two days latter to follow up and make sure I was satisfied. Talk about customer service. Thank you Lewmar and Hunter.

+1 that's great news. All to often we feel 'on our own' after the purchase of something, glad to see customer service is still a live and kickin.

Melrna, so how do you take the liners off to access the bottom of the coachroof ?

Well, that is the million dollar question. Here is what Hunter told me.

The Headliner is held up in a track that is attach to the coach-roof. One has to find a corner, open up the track with a tool and carefully pull the headliner out of the track. Only take out as much of the headliner that you need to get to the area you are working on. For what I gathered it like a furling jib track that that headliner sits in. Only one can prey open the track. Now for the tool.

#1 Buy their custom made tool for $80.
#2. Use the edge of an old CD to open the track and reattach the headliner.
#3. Get a putty knife and file down the edge to a dull finish.
#4. Get a screen gasket tool (Like a pizza cutter but only dull).
I plan on trying this out this weekend. Wish me luck.
