Removingcabin top hand rail on Tanzer 22

Hi All

I was looking at a friend's Tanzer 22 yesterday. Most of the wood on the boatd needs to be repaired and/or replaced. When looking at his hand rails on the top of the cabin, there does not seem to be any way to remove them from the boat. They are definitely screwed in from the underside, but since the boat has a full liner, how are you supposed to get at the screw heads to loosen them off?

Hmm, the entire inside of the boat has a molded fiberglass or plastic liner. It is like there is a full boat inside the cabin. Pretty sure it cannot be removed (I may be wrong, but I cannot imagine how!)

You can cut the liner under the handrails or if you can tell exactly where the attachments are you can drill a hole with a holesaw under each. After reattaching the rails plug the holes with something. I hate liners overhead for this reason.

Leave them in place if salvageable and work on them there. If they are removed it may open a can of worms and cause water penetration to the deck if not properly reattached.

Are you sure they're mounted from below? Usually they're screwed from above and the top of the screw hole is bunged.

You can also cause delamination if they are hard to pull off. Sometimes you are better to leave sleeping dogs lie.

I would agree if they just need a refinishing but he stated that they need repair or replacement so they may have to be removed.
