    Default Re: The alternative to vinyl droop!

    I stripped some vinyl off the hull sides in the after cabin. No damp problem - the vinyl had been spoiled during work on the rubbing strake. Afterwards the sides were painted with anti-condensation paint, just in case. I didn't bother removing the old glue, just tidying the loose bits.
    On the internet no one knows you are a donkey.

    When I replaced the headlining on my Westerly Jouster I gave up the will to live at the interior trim strips (level with the rubbing strips). From there down to bunk level is supposed to be foam backed vinyl, but for the quarter berths I just painted the interior with good ol' Danboline instead. Worked fine, looked fine.
