Siamese: You think that's bad, you should have seen the result of me trying to remove a torn, full, 15 year old flexible holding tank. (Why do people use these???) Not pretty and the resulting infection within my knee warranted a trip to the ER. I'm lucky I still have "crew mates"...

Edward: the "s" has me confused. Is it your user name?

HelloS: Catalina direct is now selling a "kit"..albeit a high priced one that requires only a hand drill. I can't see how this could drill a straight hole however without building a guide. I may create a homemade "press" to attach my drill to. I am aware of the lead and will take proper precautions. This whole task does not seem very daunting and seems to be well within the scope of my abilities. I am however very curious as to what things will look like underneath the top layer of fiberglass. The fun one will be the two bolts under my engine.
