    Trim parts more than anything else...wood parts that have weathered badly and some that are just plain ugly. Also I have a question about parts, like cleats, that have been screwed into the hull and refuse to be taken off...that is to say that the screws have come part way out and then will not come the rest of the way out???
    Has anyone run into this and if you have what did you do about it?
    Thank you all for taking the time to read this...

    are you sure the cleats are not thru-bolted?

    The "Cleat screws"

    No I'm not sure if they are bolted all the way into the cabin, not yet I'm not. Our wet winter weather has come to Oregon and with gale force winds and a couple of inches of wet pouring down.Well I think you get my drift here? Just as soon as it clears up for a day or so to dry out I'll take the cover off and take a look under the deck.
    Thank you for youre reply***

    if there is a headliner you may have to feel around with your hands for some nuts, might have to trim back the headliner and re-glue it later.

    cut the headliner on 3 sides to make a flap.

    re: the headliner

    You hit it right on the head about the headliner...the entire cabin is covered in a low pile carpet except of course the cushions.Another day of 60 mph+ winds here at Lakeside. so the cover stays on until all of this silliness stops for a day or two. I sure hope your right the cover for the anchor chain in the front of the bow, about a foot back from the point of the bow did have threaded screws. unfortunately I cannot see enough of the two screws holding that cleat down to know if it is the same or a "sheet metal" type as some of the other accessories are? I will post the results the very day this is resolved....promise!***
