Well it helps to have a skinny wife. I was unable to do any more than just get the tip of my middle finger on the out let of the pump. Ask the wife if she could try and she was able to squeeze between the engine and the swim deck and release the pump for me. When I inspected the pump I noticed the impeller was seized. I used a pair of vice grip pliers on the shaft and was able to free the impeller shaft. All seems to work fine for now. Wife reinstalled for me. Ready to Rock! As a side note I called the dealer I purchased the boat from about the bilge and they informed me that it was not covered under warranty.
