headliner

Has anybody taken down the head liner completely on a 34/37? We just installed some mast pulpits on Indigo and we had to pull the headliner staples out near the outboard edges to be able to drill through the deck and bolt it in. It was a real pain to get the headliner staples out but I'm afraid it will be much worse getting it back up.

There has to be a trick to getting the headliner stapled back in place tight without wrinkles. Someone told me to try and heat it with a hair drier to stretch it out - and should tighten up after stapling as it cools back down. Any special tools that would make it easier?

Since I have it part way down, I'm considering going the rest of the way (one side at a time) in order to re-bed the deck hardware. Nothing leaks now, but it's 20 year old sealant and it seems like a good time to do it.

A few years back I pulled the headliner off the boat. We had bought the boat new and the mast pulpits were not included in the original order, but were added prior to the boat leaving the Fullerton facility. Apparently they were installed after the headliner and the amount of sealant used was minimal which resulted in leaks when the boat was worked hard.

The boat was worked hard doing the Baja Bash north and as a result the zippers were completely corroded, I needed to pull and reseat the mast pulpits and with the headliner off reseated most of the deck hardware.

Took awhile to find someone to replace the headliner. But utimately Hoffman Foam of San Diego did a beautiful job. They also did an excellent job on the new interior cushions that were done year.

I would suggest giving Memo of Hoffman Foam a call and see if he can help with reinstalling the headliner in your boat.

Re: headliner

Thanks Marc,
I appreciate the help, and I'll give them a call.

I see that the PSC factory is now doing panel and batten overheads which looks much better IMO and would make getting to the bolt heads so much easier. However, I don't think that will fit in my budget or timeline any time soon.
