boat wallpaper

I had to strip off the old wall covering in our boat, this nasty old stained nylon lightweight carpet stuff (other boaters called it 'rat hair' or 'monkey fur'.) It appeared to have been rubber cemented in place. Now I have bare fiberglass hull (walls) in the cabin, and I want to put up some vinyl wallpaper. How do I prepare the scratchy, rough surface? How do I make sure it's mildew and mold resistant?

Not sure what you want to do there. But any small belt or pad sander should take it down for you. Id look into any kind of headliner They have it with a foam backing . Its flame and mildew resistant. After a time as a live aboard I learn like the rest. The more the boat looks like a clorox jug. the less work you have to do to keep it looking clean. Im a RAG man not a Stink potter. Have a good one
