Removal of material from bulkheads..?

Greetings!

I have an O'Day 222 that has the original carpet-like material glued to the bulkheads...
I've tried pulling on this "stuff" and I suspect it was glued on with resin. It looks nasty and dirty and I'd love to strip it off and put something else up..
My question.. has anyone else ever pulled this crap off and what was your best method??
Thanks in advance for your help!

i removed the carpet and laminates to redo my interior last year.
the best way i found was to use a heat gun (carefully) to loosen the edges and then worked with several scrapers and small chissel edges to remove.
most interior laminates and carpet are attached with contact cement!!
it's tedious so work in small areas at a time!!!
good luck

Liner Removal

Doug,
My wife and I just removed the liner on our O'day 35 this fall. First we pulled the covering off, ripped it off. We then scrapped the foam off with slightly sharpened scrappers (wear gloves to avoid blistering your hands). Then sprayed the remaining glue with a product called "Contractor's Solvent" from the hardware store, and used a scrub brush and water. This stuff is citrius based so no heavy chemical fumes. You could also use one of the latex/adhesive removers (ie. Glue-gone or Goof-Off), use citrus base, you don't want/need the fumes, too dangerous. Then scrub down a few times with soap and water, rinse well, to get rid of the excess solvent. We also scrubbed down with Clorox 2 to get rid of any mildew or "smelly" stuff. New liner and adhesive is available from marine supply or RV supply houses. I believe we ordered ours from "Defender". A lot of work but removal helped get rid of the boat smell. In the middle of major refit so we haven't installed the new liner yet.
