Ohio is right...not hard..the only issue is if you turn your tank..make sure the filler hose is disconnect from deck..if you can pull the filler cap do it..it can stress the gel coat when turning tank...2 screws and not a big deal.

Yes, did mine last year...I used my battery pump from my turkey fryer to remove the fuel. Put the fuel in my truck and stored the boat empty. As for the pump, it is now labeled as GAS ONLY and I keep it with my boat winterization stuff. Sorry, but it worked.

Just to update this thread to help others in the future...

I was able to remove the 8 screws holding in the fuel tank and even with it full of fuel, I was able to slide it forward about 2" so it was no longer pinching the blower hose on the back of the boat.

Confirming what others have said here, there are two hoses from the two vents. They do NOT connect, but rather one just drops behind the fuel tank to vent the rear of the boat. They are however zip-tied together. This same zip-tie was also through a loop in the back of the boat holding them up and back. With the fuel tank pulled forward, I was able to get both of these hoses replaced.

I purchased '20 feet of the 3" dia hose from skiDIM. This allowed me to replace both the blower hose and the rear vent hose with new. http://www.skidim.com/prodinfo.asp?number=MPI402-3000

No... sorry... No pics. I need to get better about that. I am always trying to squeeze projects into small windows of time and never seem to get pics.
