    Headliner Material anyone???-gctid370372

    Im looking to buy new headliner material for my 4550. Going to start with the PH since it looks easier and smaller than the salon.

    I took down the front and side valences and studied how the headliner was installed and I think I can do it!

    The original is just looking too old and with all the other updating on the boat, I think its time.

    Does anyone know where to purchase this stuff? It looks "breathable" so i dont want to just purchase a vinyl for seating, or can I?

    Does it really have the be breathable?

    Any info would be greatly appreciated!!

    When I replaced my headliner in the salon and port head I used a cream colored FRP 4' x 8' panels commonly used in a bathroom remodel, then trimed the seams with teak, photo enclosed.

    It made the salon much brighter.

        I bought that at Costco when I first moved onto my boat while refurbishing after I bought the fully submerged 3870 for $1200.00, needed light, $19.99, brass plated, will be replaced soon unless I can find some 12 v very small base bulbs. It serves it's purpose on dark winter nights, Seward AK has a lot of daylight in the summer.

          When I redid the headliner in my 36 ' Uniflite several years ago I also used cream colored FRP with teak trim - just like the stuff that's over my galley on the 45. I thought it would be easier to install and I could clean it every year without telltale avenging swirls.

          When it's time to do my 45 will look into using the same FRP (fiberglass Reinforced Plstic) with teak trim.

            Hey that FRP looks really good! I may consider that if nobody comes up with a good source for the headliner material. Seems much easier to install.

            I hope I can do the FRP in the PH too since the ceiling curves alot more towards the sides. Guess I can break it up as it heads to the curved part, maybe one angled panel and then 3 or 4 panels in the middle.

            Still like to try the headliner in the PH and maybe do the FRP in the salon.

            Thanks boatwork and darby!

              You run the 8' sheets first, the split the seam down the middle, look at my photo on my 3870, use teak trim on all the seams, and the screws with the dresser wsser washers to firm up the curve in the overhead.

                [img]/media/kunena/attachments/vb/674661=26462-photo.jpg[/img]I removed all the bunny fuzz in the forward stateroom of my 3988 last year. I installed foam backed vinyl on the ceiling and hull sides.I ordered all my materials from Great Lake Skippers, they have a good inventory (or they did last year) of pleaded headliner material plus almost anything else for your boat.

                  I have a roll of the original headliner material. The po of our 4550 aquired it from a friend who purchased it for his Bayliner and did not use it. I have used a small amount to make a cover over the davit bolt in the salon ceiling, matches perfect. Give me a call.
