Hello fellow sailors. I have just bought a 1984 Islander 28 and the roof lining was torn and very dirty so the previous owner stripped it out. He didn't take any photos so I'm at a loss to know how to replace it. A few photo's would be very helpful. thanks in advance.

I have a Islander 26'. My headliner is fairly good condition, but both sides need replacing due to port light leaks. You will probably need to have it custom made. I am debating whether or not to rip everything out myself.

Islander Bahama 30 Elk Rapids, MI
Headliner

On my Bahama 30, the headliner was good when I bought the boat, but the sides around the lights were torn and rotted from leaking windows. You can fix this yourself, but its a fair job. I tore out all of the headliner in the main cabin with the exception of the very top. I took out the windows, ordered replacements from Mark Plastics, and dug out all of the rotted plywood.

I replaced the rotted plywood with 1/4" ply and epoxy. I then covered the whole area with 1/8" teak plywood and routed out the window holes. Let me know if you decide to do this and I'll send more complete instructions.

Once the teak was in place, I installed the replacement windows per Mark's instructions (use SilGlaze) So, all I have with headliner is the very top. Let me know if you want pics. I'm heading to the boat later today and will post a couple if that would help.

Thank you Katica I.m wondering if the 30 is the same as the 28. It's the wooden trim which is the problem I have most of the bits but the previous owner took it down and didn't have any photos.
