Has anyone had the port side railings get loose. Is their anyway to get at them.
The screws on 2 supports are loose and nuts have to be tightened.

Start digging into cabinets. They will often carpet over them, I had to cut into the carpet inside of the back of galley cabinets to expose the locking nuts backing the cleats. I had to remove the medicine cabinet in the head to do the same on the Stbd side.

Not port, starboard for us ... still trying to figure out a way to get at it.

Years ago I bent the bow rail stanchion on the port side, about mid-way. Called a local welder who brought out a mobile welder and some strong-stock replacement (much better than the OEM). Cut it to size and angle to match the bent one. Couldn't get access to the 4 nuts. He cut the stanchion at the rail and then drilled out the heads of the 4 bolts on the base. The bolts just dropped inside. Then he cut the base from the bent stanchion and welded it to the new stanchion. Epoxied the base and screwed over-sized screws into 3 of the bolt holes. Could only access 3 of them. Then welded the new stanchion on to the bow rail. Results are a stronger stanchion/bow rail and very secure at the base. This guy was good. If all fails on gaining access, perhaps drill out the 4 bolt heads. Then lift up the base and epoxy, screw-in the base.

One pic show what the bolt and washer looks like for one of the cut bolts. I found it by chance while trouble shooting a problem with the fwd sump-pump flow.
