    Default Ceiling Panel Fabric

    Does anyone know a source of the "faux leather" foam backed coverings that boat builders use.
    Preferably the coverings that Princess use.

    If you want it to match you probably need to go through the Boat builder.

    Generally the wooden backing panels can be reused.

    Alternatively do a complete cabin or say all ceiling panels in one cabin in new and a mismatch is not so obvious.

    The problem that we have has just manifest itself.
    A couple of panels neat the patio doors have started to sag.
    Quite strange - only happens when the humidity is very high and a couple of hours with the A/C on tightens up the fabric.
    Also only when the pressure is low and the sea level is high - seems ok under normal conditions.
    I guess this is just the beginning and we will need to replace the fabric.

    We have removed a panel from the lower deck and it matches the colour of the panels near the patio doors.
    So there doesn't appear to be any fading and replacement fabric shouldn't look out of place.

    I am pretty sure that the original panels were made by Lang and Potter so I will be taking the small panel home with me to match the fabric.
    So, I expect that I will need to make a trip to Lang and Potter in Plympton to source the fabric.

    But - maybe someone on this forum has had the same experience and will know the original manufacturer.

    The Princess next to us (a P58) has the same problem but on a bigger scale.
    They have decided to source the fabric from MBS Fabrics in Windsor.
    See here http://mbsfabrics.co.uk/
    MBS are the distributor for Sunbrella - they supply MJB Boats (Martin - the guy who several people on here use for cushions).
    Unfortunately, I haven't been able to buy from MBS - they only sell to the trade.
    That said, I have seen some of the samples that MBS stock and I don't think that they supply Lang and Potter.

    It would be good to track down the original manufacturer.

    I’m confused why you’re asking. You have a good relationship with princess and they must know surely? Or is there more to it?

    Yes - Princess are always helpful.
    Just trying to find the original manufacturer of heading used by Princess/Lang and Potter.
    Or a distributor.
    I have got time - don't need to replace right now but, you know me, I like to have the spares for when I DO need it.
