I have to remove the rear deck of my boat to access my bilge hose for some repair. I broke off the outer part of the hose fitting. So I have to remove the rear deck to make a repair....anyone ever remove/alter the factory set up on your boat? What should I do or not do?? I have ordered all new factory screws to replace the old ones to ensure a tight fit once I re-assemble.:embarassed: It's not going to be easy since most likely the back half of my boat will be removed. What happened is that somehow I broke the plastic fitting on the outside of my boat where my bilge pump dumps the water out of the boat. It still works but it just needs to be trimmed off so it doesnt look like just a hole on the side of my boat. Any advice? I can post pics to help you see what I'm working on.
