On the Conquest 23, there is an upholstered access cover located in the cabin which covers over the starboard hard top stanchions. The purpose of this is to hide the wiring running from the hard top and cover the back side of the lower eletronics box. It is supported by 3 screws in the front that screw into starboard blocks, and by a funky starboard strip in back whose function is to provide a support that rests on yet another starboard strip attached to the cabin bulkhead.

A couple of times in rough seas, the rear strip has fallen off its mate on the bulkhead and the cover was left hanging on by the front three screws. Does anyone have any advice on how to modify this to be more secure?

On mine, the rear is screwed into starboard blocks the same way as the front. I am not sure how the rear blocks are attached to the cabin bulkhead. It was set up this way when I purchased boat used. Maybe blocks can be screwed into bulkhead and then rear can be screwed into the them.

Two possible ways to maybe fix that. Replace the strip on the bulkhead with a thicker one, and screw directly into that bulkhead strip versus clamping it between the cover and strip attached to the cover. Or, put interlocking bevels on both of the existing pieces where the edges make contact. It always seemed to me kind of hokey the way it was fastened, and I had it drop a couple of times also. BillS

I think you have the same cabin as the 21 conquest. Take out the electronics box, then you have access to the starboard blocks that the screws go into. Use bigger blocks, or screw the box on with the electronics box removed so you can see the screws go in to the block.
