Cork Veneer Ceiling

I have a 1981 42' Californian LRC with a beautiful cork veneer ceiling in the salon. I need to replace one stip of the veneer. Can anyone tell me where I might find this cork veneer? Thanks for your help. Capt. Fred

It's more like a cork wall paper glue over a thin sheet of plywood, than a veneer. I haven't replaced mine yet, but it is a dated look. Still don't know what I will replace it with??

I've tried a couple of times to upload a photo but unsuccessful. Sorry. It is a simulated cork paper as described by Larry B. Thanks

Cork Ceiling

TG: Your photo is exactly how my ceiling looks. I like mine also and have had a lot of complimentary comments about the way it looks. Do you know where I can purchase more of that material? Thanks for the photo.

Capt Fred,

Have you called Navigator Yachts to ask? My boat was built in Tustin, CA by Marshall Boats. Jule Marshall, the designer/builder, and his son, Gil, still run Navigator/Californian. I called and spoke to Gil about my boat and we had a great conversation with his Dad listening on the speaker from the next desk. Gil recalled being a 15 year old working at his Dad's factory. He was the bilge rat who climbed in the early hulls running wire and plumbing since he was the smallest guy.

They recall much about those early models and might be able to point you toward the vendor. At the very least, you're likely to have a great conversation with the early builders of your boat, if it's a Marshall model.

Al, Thanks a bunch. My boat is a Marshall boat and I will get in touch with Navigator Yachts. I'll let you know what I find out. Capt. Fred

I know this is an older thread, but thought it fit the topic if someone is looking for this type of info...

Finally getting around to replacing the old butterscotch vinyl headliner and the nasty carpet and cork that was on the hull walls in the cabin with bead board and trim. Tricky job, as there is NOTHING square or even underneath the old headliner. Basically had to build a substructure of studs to attach the bead board.

Replacing the port lights at the same time with much larger, fully opening ports. Man what a difference in light and airflow they make!! Still have to do the fore cabin... ran out of vacation time....

Great work. Where did you get the bead board? What finish did you use. Sure did lighten things up.
