Astarte's New Ceiling (2004)

Main Cabin
Astarte's new ceiling is made of fiberglass laminate, a tough, flexible, easy-to-clean material that won't suffer from water damage.

I put 1/4" thick cedar battens around the edges and between the panels to provide space for bolt heads and nuts that secure deck hardware.  Original moldings were re-used around the perimeter; I made the new teak strips that go crosswise. Panels can be removed easily to access deck hardware fasteners.

The new ceiling is beautiful, but certainly does not deaden engine noise.
