Sure, I will post pictures. Yes, my headliner has two zippers that run a good 6 feet or so on both the starboard and port sides to gain access to deck fittings, cables, etc. Real handy when adding upgrades or doing inspections.

|Boatsmith||seems like a reasonable price to me|

|trantor12020||LittleWingCA, in your quote there's a mention on Zippers... is this for access to bottom of coach roof mounted equipment? If yes, that will be interesting. Would you post pictures after completion? please please ??|

Can you share the name of the vendor? I am in San Diego as well. Maybe they are one and the same.

Never had this done but if it's as complex as I'm picturing seems reasonable to me. I've used a sewing machine but this sure don't seem like a project I'd want to do. Plus it will be just like wallpaper, no one else will notice any small imperfections, but your eye will be drawn to them every time.
We'll get black mold around hatches and hidden places in winter without the use of a dehumidifier.

The quote sounds about right if your plan for boat maintenance is cheque writing.
But there are other durable, attractive solutions that are fairly easy to do if you are a bit handy. Easier to keep clean than vinyl or cloth and hides the wiring as well. Here's a link to a good how-to on headliners. About halfway down the page.

As far as keeping an eye out for leaks from deck hardware, if they need rebedding it should be done properly and then you are good for several years minimum.

|GraemeInCanada||I've recently been looking for material to use in my own boat and found "marine" vinyl at $27 per yard (round abouts). It's about 4 feet wide, so you'll need to do the math there but I suspect about 13 yards of it. Add in the glue, time, cutting, measuring etc.. get's up there. Could you do it for half that cost? yup. I think so. Is your time worth it? I would think it would take a few days to a week to do. About 2 grand seems high, I would do it myself but it all depends on what your time is worth.|

Is that labor? materials? or both? I spent about 1G just in materials IIRC, maybe half of that at the least to redo all the foam backed vinyl in my 30'r. I was quoted upwards of $7-8K including labor. HERE is a link to the how I did the aft stateroom, with a link to the head area at the bottom of that article.
Hope this helps some.

No worries, all inputs welcome. Maybe going "natural" would be better.
