8.0b Toerail

This past November I bought an 1981 S2 8.0b and now that the weather has improved here in North-East Ohio I've starting working through my list of problems that need to be addressed. The previous owner left the boat uncovered over the winter, and I had a lot of water come in around the chainplates and I also suspect the through-hull screws on the aft starboard toerail. I plan on removing and re-caulking the chainplates this weekend, and I'd love to re-seal the toerail but I'm a little concerned about removing it. I can feel the bumps under the fabric inside the cabin where the backing nuts are, but I'd hate to have to cut away all that fabric in order to get to them. I was just wondering if anyone has removed their toerails and could relate what kind of pain it will entail?

Thanks,
