I painted my headliner

Just because Southerly is on the market, doesn’t 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.
