Cuddy Removal

Thread starter #1
I recently had occaision to remove the top trim piece from my Mod II at the cuddy. I wanted to inspect inside the forepeak but when I tried to remove the cuddy, it was held in with a very strong sealant.

Is this normal? or should it just slide out after you remove the screws securing the cuddy around the opening?

So the adhesive is supposed to be there? It is REALLY stuck. to the point where prying too hard will damage the flange on the cuddy
