I painted my headliner

Just because Southerly is on the market, doesnít mean I stop working on her.

This was actually a fun project. I did the forward berth and it came out great!

Looks very nice. I did that on a previous boat.

Wait, what?

Was the headliner some kind of cloth?

Cheers,

This was one of my easier projects.

The headliner is perforated vinyl. The kind with the tiny holes.

I did much research on this subject. I used sherwin Williams acrylic semi gloss paint. Use 2 parts paint to 1 part water. I used a very fine brush. Forget the roller, it makes a mess. Be patient. A little at a time so not to cover all the holes.

Acrylic paint has very little smell to it if at all.

To anyone who is contemplating following Donna’s advise. I can vouch that it works very well and is really simple.
Wipe down the headliner first with a light tsp and water solution.
I used Ben Moore acrylic latex semi gloss. Thinned with water by about 1/3. Came out great!

Thanks for posting Donna!

Our headliner is a mess - a PO varnished the teak grab rails and battens without taping off the headliner! We've been debating what to do for a few years, and this seems by far the easiest solution.

I painted one in a previous boat. I used a spray can paint that was made for headliners. I think I got it from Eastwood auto parts.

Rather than paint, try this product. It's made for leather, but worked great on my smooth vinyl headliner that was terribly stained with mold that I couldn't get out. Pics available if interested. Came out looking like new. Easy to apply with a foam brush or sponge. Wide range of colors available, "cream" matched mine perfectly.

Looks like a nice, easy solution.

Donna sold that boat. I think she bought a different boat but I havenít seen her posting lately.
