I did pretty much the same thing, but used the white beadboard paneling made from pretty much the same masonite material.

jmoesswilde brian,
thanks for the reply. i think that for now i will leave the current headliner in place and support it with some teak bows that follow the curve of the cabin top inside. that should hold up this sagging liner . the liner itself is not torn but one zipper is broken. i am considering next year taking out the liner and putting in a slightly "dropped ceiling" from 1""stringers" where any slat could be easily removed for servicing wires or fastenings. you're right though, it needs to be covered in some way.

mitiempo Here's a link to how it is done with pics. It is about halfway down the page.

I've seen this done on at least one other boat and it looked quite good.

johnferrell I am in the process of replacing my headliner and am using FRP Fiberglass reinforced panels. It is easy to work with.

mitiempo It can be part of an insulation system, either with air above or closed cell foam of one type or another. It also hides the inside of the cabintop molding, often roughly finished as most were designed to be covered during manufacturing. Also hides the fastenings of deck mounted items and protects you and yours from hitting your heads on them.

headliner

so why does there need to be a headliner? i was hoping to just paint the solid fiberglass and be done with it. once i rebed the fastenings for the handrails on the cabin top (which are causing the leaking i have now) i do not anticipate any leaks. what else does the headliner do? insulation? mositure buildup?

headliner

just bought a 1978 pacific secraft 25 and i would like to just tear out the headliner of this pacific secraft 25 and paint the inside fiberglass white. will that work?
also i have some leaking around the mast step and compression post. is it a big deal to remove the mast step to rebed it?

Headliner replacement options?

Thanks Gord and jklewissf,
I really like the idea of the door skins with velcro and then add the finishing washers in the corners, and the middle for the long sections. I can still get the insulation to fit up in there. That would work very well for what I have to work with.
