Yep have removed the overhead piece between the two like pieces. Without damaging anything more than is shown in the pictures, still solid as a rock. I have pulled on the damaged one more than once hoping to break loose. I am rocking the boat big time--pulling. Are there more fasteners that I am not getting to?

Does any part of it feel loose or does the whole thing still feel secured? Maybe they used the plastic upholstery retainers or even glue on the inside?

There is nothing obvious that it has been glued, but it is still very secured and ridged. The edges fit so tightly trying to insert a smooth thin putty knife tells me it may be glued. If that is the case destruction may be my only option. If upholstery Christmas trees were used I feel confident I could get some movement---but nothing. Just a PITA at this point. However it is secured Fountain did a heck of job.

If it is anything like my Formula 311, some of the Trim pieces were actually screwed in under the vinyl or laminate covering. So destruction was the case with me on some.

Thanks for the reply. I have had that proposed as to how it was originally done. Sure doesn't seem like it should be done that way, If you have seen it done that way, I'm sure not just anybody would be willing to tackle that project. Guess I will see. Thanks

Just hit it with your purse.

Just kidding.
If you have to destroy it to get it off, that sucks. But it will not be that hard re-make it. Using some starboard or like wood that is in there, you will be able to remake the backer pieces and have them recovered. I had to so some of the same when I redid the interior on my 17' SpeedLiner.
