RE: [campernicholson] Overhead Panels
Al – I used fiberglas panels that can be purchased at Lowe’s or Home Depot. They are sued for wall panels and have a smooth side and a “textured” side. They are normally used with the textured side but I like the smooth side better. I had to paint the surface before installing. Comes in 4 x 8 sheets.

I am in the middle of replacing the overhead. I had been planning to use painted plywood. But the fibreglas panels sound like a better idea.
Can you send more information on where the panels can be purchased.

Just passing along info to members. This S/V is our only "sister" is
our area, Lake Superior . She is listed with Hooper's Yachts @ their
website: www.hoopersyachts.com I don't know all the details of
condition, but I do know "Gavia" has been used as a training sailboat
for the "Y" sailing camp for many years.
We continue to upgrade our "Lea-Rig". We installed a new Force 10
stove, three burner, European Compact, #63358. Fits fine. only had to
add a 1/8 in. of washers each side to their brackets. I added a
bracket on bottom panel to route hose better. European does not mean
different size threads, by the way, just smaller. I hope our loaves of
bread do not rise too much...Now we will install a solenoid system for
New headliner will be done this summer. We removed the vinyl and
placed thin fiberglass sheeting panels after adding the necessary
wooden stringers. Then mahogany 1/4 in strips. I made a trapezoid
shape piece running the length between ceiling and cabin side. This
will tie into the next project removing the side vinyl along with
adding metal frames around the portals. The same fiberglass panels
will be used.
