Joint compound over vinyl sheetrock
It should work. The vinyl on the board SHOULD be adhered well enough so as to not delaminate from the moisture in the joint compound. That is the main concern. You will, however, have to skim coat the entir surface to get a smooth/even finish. Prime with an oil primer first. That should seal the vinyl. I would recommend a professional to do the mud work...
