Sorry but every search on this site I kept finding un-related answers!
I brought home my Argosy 26 about a month ago and have halfway gutted the inside, redoing plumbing, electrical, counter tops, etc. The mattresses were thrown out by previous owner (due to a basement flood) but I am in the process of ordering new foam and upholstery.
There is an aluminum strip/rail on both sides of interior about 4 inches deep that runs the full length of the bed. It has a small piece of fake veneer on front of it. Can anyone tell me what function it serves? It looks like it might have been a place for a cushion to tuck under, but without cushions I cannot tell what it is supposed to look like.
Is it structural or a cushion holder? it doesn't make a very good shelf!
