No need to remove the fuel cell completely. The fuel filler hose is a pain in the rump....hardened and will not slide off / out from the top deck-side as it may appear. Best way to remove the hose is to cut it off with a box knife and put on a new one to save hours of fruitless effort and scratches to the deck finish. Been there.

Suggestion:
For ease and convenience; your fuel cell can be rotated on the fuel filler hose with the hose in place...remove the hold-down brackets from the top and bottom of the cell. Loosen the worm gear clamps on the filler hose and merely rotate the fuel cell on that axis out onto the floor of the boat (filler hose still connected). You can access everything you need by using that method unless you just feel compelled to remove the cell and the pain-in-the-rump hose.

Do not use the open-spark source (the drill) once the fuel system is breached, for screw removal.
