Lead should never be power sanded.

I used very good carpet (outdoor) for the ceilings in my Irwin 28.5. Looked great, added softness (when heeled) and cuts down the sounds.
The first owner did something to it, paint with texture, looked like shit and felt cold and wet all the time.


Lubbers beware: the ceiling is located along the inboard sides of a ship, never overhead.

Marine ceiling:
The lining or inboard sheathing covering the frames of a wooden boat. Usually ceiling is light planking or slats covering the frames in cabin areas to provide insulation, deaden sound, reduce condensation and provide a more finished appearance.

My back aches at the implied stooping and bending and holding myself in pretzel shapes. 8O

Thanks everyone!

CaptUB, I 've been thinking about adding carpet to the overhead. I really like the idea.Any suggestions on carpet brand/ type? Carpet would also work well on the cabin sides.

And yes, Tony that cabin has all sorts of difficult angles. It's almost like playing a solo game of Twister in there. I can usually only handle a couple hours (sanding/fairing/crawling around in there) at a time.

You may cut down on the sanding so much if you would stop spreading that red stuff all over!! :D
