Default Bow rail or rub rail leak

New maxum owner, love my 2000 2400 scr, just noticed a small leak coming in behind the decrative vinyl between the side carpet and the head liner, can't figure out how to remove the decorative piece to remove or tighten the bow rail bolts or check where it might be coming in, any ideas would be great, have seen some great info on here !!!

Welcome aboard

Use a hose and wet all rail stations one at a time until you find the leak, however if one is leaking they probably should all be rebeded.

On my 97' 2400 the hardware is exposed in the cabin.

If this is the piece that would essentially cover the rub-rail on the inside of the cabin, essentially marrying the headliner to the carpeted hull, then this is screwed through the seam where the deck meets the hull. The screws are then covered by the rub rail itself.

The leak is either coming through the rub rail bolts, or the screws which holds this gtrim piece. either way you're morfe than likely going to need to remove the rub rail to fix this issue.

I had to remove a piece in the vberth. I essentially 'ripped' it out with brute force, then used the plastic 3M 'velcro' (not the right word but the best I can come up with) to adhere it back again.
Shhhhhh!!! Please lower your voice, the boat is sleeping.
