Hoping you guys hope you can help - Here in the uk I have a 1994 Hobie 18 Formula which has plastic buckets fitted inside the hull under the hatch covers does anyone know how to remove them without damaging them ?

Not something standard from Hobie USA. Maybe a Hobie Europe thing? Photos?

Drill out the rivets fixing the covers to the hull and remove the assembly whole. Then, figure out how to remove the buckets.

Thanks for the quick response. Yes it is a euro boat and i have had the cover retaining ring off before to reseal it but the bucket is not effected or released by this. It is as if its retained within the fibreglass structure. But thanks anyway.
Will take some picys and sort out how to upload them but it will not be for a week or two
Great forum by the way had the boat since 1996 and only just found this
