After removing the trim and painting the paneling white, I stapled the sails to the walls. With some experimentation, I realized the best effect was to show off the sails' hardware. Instead of simple white panels, I had sail numbers, grommets, jib hanks, main slides, tell-tales, headboards, battens, and leech lines flying high. Pre-painted 1' by 4's worked well for the new trim. The only bummer was that I simply couldn't get these baggy sails tight on the walls.
