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.

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

|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.|

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?

|T37Chef||FWIW...I replaced the headliner in our Tartan with a Masonite type product from Home Depot. Some would say not the best product to use but I figured it was pretty much the same as what was in there and that lasted for almost 30 years. If it gets wet it will have to be replaced, but then I don't have any leaks in the deck. It is covered with a glossy white finish on one side and easy to work with. I used the old ones as a template and I also add some insulation when we replaced it, boat seems a little more cozy now and has a new 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.
