Carpeted bulkheads

I have a 1976 Reinell 2210 that I am just starting to Reno the interior. The bulkhead has carpet on them which is definitely 70's vintage color and style, oh yuck!

I want to replace with something either laminate or a nice paneling. Which is the easiest to work with and what adhesive is recommended for applying the material?

Any suggestion is welcome. I have read Don Casey book This Old Boat first and second edition, seems rather straight forward but would like others opinions? Oh for those interested I am keeping a blog of my work and will post the URL soon.

Thanks for the information!

Good on you for getting rid of the carpet..

A white laminate with some varnished trim always looks nice, and you minimize the maintenance. (the Herreschoff look).

I like that look good choice. Now do you know where this laminate can be found, lowes, west marine? Will epoxy be best for attaching?

I bought some marine vinyl to re-cover our interior cushions and has some remaining. I decided to try it on the interior bulkheads. Just bought a quart of rubber cement, measured twice, cut once and slapped it on. Looks very nice.

That must have been Reinell's standard back then. I was on a late 70's 26' sundeck Reinell once years ago. The ENTIRE interior - hull sides, overhead etc. was covered in a gray mouse fur carpet.

Don't forget the 'mohair fur' era!

Pretty much everything is covered with overhead covered plywood with vinyl covering. That is gone too. Now to measure twice and cut!

Smile Re: Carpeted bulkheads

The quote "Nothing, absolutely nothing, is more worth doing than simply messing about in boats" actually originated from Ernest Hemingway. He was into canoeing in a big way, thus the origin of the quote. Just thought you might like to know. Wonder if he ever tried sailing?
SloopJonB and Agri like this.
