    Need help removing side panels.-gctid361726

    I apologize in advance if this is a topic that has already been discussed but I could not find any posts related to my question. I just purchased a 1988 1700 Capri bowrider in wich the interior is pretty worn but I was looking on how to remove the vinyl side panels so I could reupholster them. If anyone has any information or tips on this, that would greatly help me. Thanks.

    Welcome aboard !

    See any "buttons " on the side panels ?

    The top pops off and there should be a screw head. Along the top the screws go into a strip of wood mounted to the hull under the gunnel. The bottom into a strip of wood mounted to the hull.

    In the middle there may be a flat piece of wood from gunnel to deck, or the piece maybe further forward, 1/3 aft of the windshield. All covered in foam and vinyl.

    There's maybe a shelf. To remove that you have to look to see where it screws into a piece of wood mounted to the hull.

    Save the wood and make fresh ones using them as templates.
    Be good, be happy, for tomorrow is promised to no man !

      Look in the folds. You'll find a 'cut' and behind that is a philips head screw.
