Thank you for this thread. Sadly, however.. I’m still screwed…despite unscrewing everything I can find! The cabinet shows no sign of movement with screws out, either in the vertical plane, aft plane or laterally.
5 Screws attaching cabinet to backrest/division of galley to salon (Picture one)
3 additional “mystery" screws in similar position (Picture one)
4 screw to the port side of the inside of of the lid enclosure (Picture two)
1 starboard screw attaching to the pillar at the most port of the backrest (not photographed, but in Reudi’s description
Q: Are there more screws I am missing?
Last photograph is the reason I am so interested in this thread. On a starboard tack there is a squeak from this join of the cabinetry. I can see and feel about a half millimeter of travel there, red relative to blue when in any significant seas, which seems to be not occasionally.
I want to eliminate that squeak (which incidentally doesn’t bother the rest of the crew), but I like a quiet ride, and it's getting more pronounced.
So I seek a solution to that movement, and thinking once cabinet is removed I can best address it. OR if anyone can think of an alternative approach I am all ears. I can remove the screen at the base and get a hand back and inside. Glue? More screws? How do folks deal with squeaks on their boats? Or am I alone in this… the stairs are next...
All thinking appreciated!
