I now have the picture if the overhead solution I installed on my Westerly Longbow. The glued in interior had come unglued. I made stringers, on 19" centers. They are 3/4 x 34 and fiberglassed to the underside of the cabin roof. I made panels of water resistant panels used in baths and other damp areas. I stayed away form the marine stores.
I then made Mahogany strips which are about 2" x 3/16. This gave a conventional look. I also used a similar technology. for the v-berth, but used a white formica material.
