Help removing Beneteau 423 ceiling panel

Hello cruisers,

I was looking for any tips/advice on how to remove the interior ceiling panels on my Beneteau 423. It looks like these.

The reason for doing this is so that I can hang a top down projector from the ceiling. They're much more energy efficient and take up less room than a TV! Any ideas for hanging the screen would be welcome as well.

Thanks

On the 393 (kindred spirit) it is best to start from the port side panel and work to stbd. It is an easy process- you just take down one 12-18" wide panel at a time.

Just take the decorative cap off of the screws with a flat blade/putty knife/5-n-1, and then start unscrewing... here's a pic of mine with the panels down.
