The shelf and cushions are original. The v-berth was the original foam and some outdoor canvas i got locally.

That looks really good.

I am going to need to reupholster mine soon as it is getting pretty threadbare.

What material did you use on the shelf and cushions?

Re: replacing the interior cabin sides and shelf fabric?

I ended up putting cheap lowes outdoor carpet on mine. 2 24inch strings covered both sides. I used the darker blue in front so it was a little darker while sleeping and a light grey in the main cabin. I it backless so I feel like it breathes pretty well. I always felt like vinyl holds moisture too much and grows mold a lot easier. The carpet warms up the cabin a good bit in cold weather and also quiets things down quite a bit.

Here is a picture of my new starboard bulheads but you can see the carpet in it.

I would love to see a picture of what that looks like

You'll usually have trouble putting flat panel material onto the compound curves of the inner hull (ironically called ceilings!)

I think carpet is generally a bad idea anywhere on board other than the odd small mat, but a non absorbent vinyl/foam with the ability to take some shape should be alright.

I still need to scrap all of the foam backing off before installing the new fabric. Will probably use foam backed vinyl. I had not considered using FRP panels. This would work. Is there any concern with the expansion & contraction of the material?

I have been busy sailing, had the boat surveyed, replaced the power panel and painted the bottom since my last post. My boat stays in the water year round.

Carpet? Carpet? I got mine with white vinyl & replaced it with blue. Did these come with carpet or vinyl??

Make sure you wear a proper fitting air mask or put lots of high volume fans in the cabin. Those glue fumes can knock you out in a confined area

Any suggestions as to which fabric to use and where to locate it? Does anyone offer a fabric kit or paper patterns for our boat?

Any suggestions welcome.
thanks
We redid the hull lining in the V-berth in our Hunter, using vinyl headliner from Joann Fabrics and 3M contact adhesive. Because the fiberglass was pretty rough we used some thin foam against the fiberglass prior to putting the headliner on. Worked ok and provided an easy to clean surface that resisted mildew.

Seems to me the stuff we used was labeled "automotive", but worked just fine in the boat.
