Thanks Dana. I think that we are going to pull it this week. I'll
have the time to look it over and (hopefully) understand how to
implement your suggestions. If I remember right, there isn't much
access from the bunk area up into the rubrail interior area. Maybe
I'll need someone with more flexability. At any rate, I will let
you guys know what happens. Really appreciate your help. Granpa
