LoL .. It did not look fun, But mine was only siliconed to the bottom and it was loose. Just hooked the wires and pulled it up and found the ground wire broke off. I am replacing it while it is out. I am just going to wire in the new one put more goo on it and stick it to the bottom with a long grabber..

The only way to do it right is to pull a motor. Unless you have some really long arms or small enough to climb in there. Had to pull one of mine last year to fix seals on y pipe. I replaced the pump and change plugs while it was out.

Some of the Rule pumps have a base that snaps off from the motor. Base stays screwed to the hull. Stiill hard to reach though.

I had my motors pulled last year and I had everything in the bilge replaced, pump, blowers, serviced trim pumps! Hell, I don't think a Spider Monkey could get in there!
