Question about v-berth

Hi all! I have a question about what to do in the v-berth with the seam that consists of the hull wall and deck.

There are screws and wiring all along this seam that we most likely will need access to sometime in the future as this is almost a 50 year old boat.

What is the best method for dealing with this?

What are you dealing with now? I understand the concept, just not the problem.

Re: Question about v-berth

Are you trying to hide it? You can probably build a long L-shaped cover out of two pieces of wood. Hold it in place by just screwing or bolting it at the ends, since it only has to support it’s own weight. Varnish or paint to match the space. Our boat just has a vertical batten glued to the underside of the deck hiding the hull/deck joint.
