2006 231 OB Live Well Issue

Have a 2006 231 OB and was curious if anyone could provide direction on how to access the pump for the front live well.  It is not reachable through the port hole in front of the outboard motor or the port hole over the batteries.  I can remove the in floor ice chest in the rear of the boat but their is a piece of fiber glassed plywood across the space where the live well pump is and the removed ice chest.

    @Vande1...the access to the livewell and bilge pump are both via the access ports in front of outboard as you've stated but unfortunately if you're like me and have short arms its is a real stretch to get at them.  My SS188, my previous GS172 and a few other Hurricanes I've worked on all had the same placement, access, and challenges.

    I was afraid that might be the case.
