Hi All ... Hoping someone can provide some advice. The fuel tank strap on the left side of my ski closest to the rear of the ski broke from corrosion at the rivets.

Question - Can i hopefully enter to repair from the front access thru the storage compartment , empty the tank lift and remove it over enough to re-attach / Repair ??

Removing the seat and looking in i can't see where it attaches let alone repair OR is there another option ? perhaps reattaching the strap elsewhere to the inner hull ? Some other sites state to repair one must remove the engine or cut the front access - Not doing either for a lousy tank strap .... Any advice would be greatly appreciated .... Thanks ... Mike
