Fuel tank removal problem
I am having a problem removing the fuel tank from a 96slt780. Everything else is out of the hull except for the fuel tank. Is it epoxied to the hull or am I missing some fasteners somewhere? Thanks for any help!

Welcome to the Hulk..
It looks like it is bolted in four places.

I don't have a bolt trick but I do have a tip Randy from Watcon told me.
Secure the bronze bushings to the hull before trying to install the tank...helps TONS!!!

Thanks everyone, its good to be here. So I get home yesterday and look into the hull and there looks to be another issue will the fuel tank removal. The large flotation blocks occupy the same space as the screws holding the tank down. Do I remove flotation (seems useless unless it starts taking on water or just cut holes to get to the screws? If removal is the direction, whats the best process to get that done? Heres a pic:
Also, I am going to post all of the other pics (parts and hull) in the projects section.
Thanks for the help!
