Removing Deck Trim
Most of the trim is not too hard to take off but the most surprising thing is the number of holes in the boat. I'm not sure why it is so necessary to inflict so many opportunities for water to either intrude into the deck core or make its way below. And this in a boat designed and built for off-shore work.
To the left are two pictures of how I removed the toe rail. I used the Dremel Multi Max with a cutting blade to get under the toe rail--after I removed all the screws holding the toe rail down. After a while, the Multi Max couldn't even get under the toe rail. So I used wooden wedges I cut in the shop and then drove them under the toe rail with a big mallet. Then I leapfrogged down the rail with alternating wedges till the toe rail came off. This was not difficult. Removing the old caulking was the hard part. I used 3M Scotch Brite pads and acetone.
The bottom picture is the coaming removed. There were a lot of screws holding it on. Some were not obvious so you have to look real close and don't force it off. If it does not come off easily then there is a screw holding it on.
