    1988 30' Weekender and have some stains on upper sides of vee berth. This caused by the forward quarter gunwales or stanchions leaking leaving a huge stain. I'm not sure what the material is and doesn't seem too damaged to the touch just the stain. Have removed the upper trim which showed a damp area and is going to be my winter project and am wondering what product to use to refinish the sides. Would appreciate any suggestions.

    I think you and I are in the same "boat". Recently posted about stained headliner in V berth and received som great info as to finding the source of the leak. Have spoke with another member here who replaced his and will pass you that info once I get home this evening. Lets keep each other posted.

    By the way, what was the process you used to remove the upper trim?

    There are Philips screws behind the buttons. As I am reupholstering I cut across the button to expose the screw but is not necessary as the screw is close to the button. If your taking off the trim at the shelf level let me know as it is a different procedure.

    My intention is to redo all upholstery and headliner material in the salon and V berth to include adding led lighting under the shelf on both sides.

    Need to recover the vee berth cushions due to wear and clean the head liner and freshen it up some how. I would like to read the link you mentioned on how to remove this head liner when you have a minute.
    Many thanks,
    Dave...

    Not sure how badly stained your headliner is, but it may need to be replaced verses cleaning. There is actually videos on headliner removal/replacement on the sailrite website via you tube. I intend on using a foam back replacement.

    . Headliner replacement. I have some photos from this site from someone I have been talking with, but I would have to send them to you by email.
