Interior walls

Post by fallguy1000 » Sun Dec 01, 2019 8:56 am

So, I have to finish the insides of my hull cabins.

I don't want to do a lot of fairing cycles and would prefer something that progresses without lotsa of sanding.

I also don't want to add a ton of weight, although most of the weight is forward of the center and I need some there; only that is not a very good lever point so close to center..

There are 11 surfaces from p to s here in the bunk and same in the steps room. Actually 13 in the steps room.

I was thinking about furring it all with powergrab and 1.5mm okume? But lotsa seams.. :(

Ever think about using MDO ply , ready to paint once glued in , no voids, waterproof glue.
I built my seat boxes with it and it worked out great for the last 6 years . Should work
better for you because not exposed to the elements . Can be hard to find though .

Thanks for coining in.

I have some weight concerns. I only see it in 3/8 and 1/2".

Ever seen it in 1/4"?

Thinness I've come across is 5/16. But it looks like weyerhaeuser could produce 1/4.

Regardless you'd have to go to a specialty lumber store and see if they could order it.

What kind of finish quality are you after? There are some nicely-textures vinyl sheets these days, can get about any faux-finish you'd like: wood, tile, linen or other cloths.

I am getting set on finishing with plywood.

I am also going to test komacell and komatex for headliner on the ceilings.

I will be calling you Mr. M. Just if I need ply for the cabin and I do, would prefer one freight bill. Might be 90 days...

Thanks.
