Well, I'll give it a try. My understanding is that these panels are on the two sides of the V berth, correct? When I have built additions in cramped spaces, I take the best measurements that I can and then cut it out of cardboard. (Refrigerator boxes are great for this). That allows you to trim in a trial & error sort of way. When it's perfect, use the cardboard as a template to cut the plywood. When it's the right size, you'll probably get it to fit. I'm sure the paneling was done after the V berth was built. My V berth sides are bare fiberglass and I was thinking of making panels like you're doing and then covering them in foam and fabric. I thought it would be cozier when I roll over and hit that cold fiberglass. Good Luck,
