I have a 09 explorer 17.  I need to figure out how to access the fuel tank. I see the little panel that talks about the Triton fuel system, but I cannot get in there to change the sending unit. Is there a way to remove anything from the boat to get to the fuel tank? I do not see any screws on the seat deck just solid fiberglass. Is the board between the Livewell doors and the seat back removable.

If it's like it's larger family members, the L shaped fuel tank is under and behind the seat pan. My Stratos is the same way. You'll most likely find the stainless steel screws buried the in the carpet pile. Some boats are just behind the seat, some are just below.
