Leaking Stanchions (aft) (L450) - How to access?

Hello All,

I have a L450 and 2 of my stbd aft stanchions are leaking fresh water in a rain. I know it is them for I can stick my head under the stbd sink and look up and see the volume of water when a crew member pours water on specific stanchions.

What I do not know how to do is to access the base plates. Form the stbd aft cabin if I pull down on the wood trim that holds up the curtains I can *see* the stanchions base plates. But how do I remove that wood to get access? I heard from an L560 owner that I should just stick a pry bar in there and pry it out as it is attached by velcro.

Obviously I would really appreciate hearing from another Lagoon [450?] owner that is indeed velcro?

Cheers,
-Erik

I have pulled quite a bit of my L450 apart. I have found that Lagoon usually makes good ways to access. Often you need to figure out if they have Velcro or screwed, the Velcro is very very strong. Send a picture of the location? I have some internal shots, one attached.

Cheers
Dave

Thank you DaveFromNZ,

It is the wood above the port window in the STBD aft cabin (picture attached but poor lighting).

Feels like it is the very strong Velcro situation...



Thank you,
-Erik

Hi Erik, the picture seems missing. However I don't know if the wooden panels use Velcro or not, sorry.

Was distracted moving Ad Astra south of Matthew.

I figured out the puzzle of which panels in which order and which are screws and which are velcro.

All good now - thank you.
