I'm about to remove the floor on my Revenge V-22. Any tips or comments on what I'm about to get myself into. The boat is fairly new to me and I'd like to inspect the belly tank, change the filler/sending unit, and change all rubber tubing and clamps. Is the tank sealed in with foam or can it be easily removed/replaced. Is there any foam work needed if I just remove the top floor about the tank? Comments appreciated.

David, I can only reference the removal of the floor (center) on a 1986 and 1989 revenge w/t. If the silicone is still intact you will have to cut it with a razor knife. Other wise the floor is a piece of cake to pull up. The 129 gallon tank is foamed in yet pulling the floor should not affect it. My brother's has a 70 gallon tank and pulling the floor was no problem. Good luck.

Thanks Swedes, So far I've gotten the port side lower cabinet pulled out. I'm working on the other side now. But I'm having to lable all my wires, move steering cables and disconnect the instruments. I think this is going to turn into a total rewire project also. Did you have to remove the chairs that are mounted to the floor first or do they come up with the floor? I'm not sure how the wood is routed under the floor. Thanks for the info.
