Accessing forward throughbolts for stanchion rebedding

Good day. I am new to the forum. My wife and I have just bought a 310 and need to rebed the forward stanchions abeam the Vberth windows. Can anyone shed light on how to access the throughbolts without cutting into the liner? Thanks!

Search around the forum. There is another thread with pictures. You need to remove the teak trim and then cut the fiberglass so you can access the nuts. Some posts have them and some don't. For instance my starboard gate stanchion had no nuts and all bolts went into a aluminum plates. On the port side they missed one of the bolts into the plate and it had a fender washer and nut.
