I have a 1994 Martinique 3200. I need to replace both fuel senders. The port side tank is easily accessible via a storage compartment removal. Has anyone ever replaced their starboard side fuel sender? There is no panel access, and there appears to be less than 4" of clearance between the sender and solid fiberglass above which is a bumped out wall before the aft exit. If you have one you will know what I am talking about.

I know this is a long shot but....
If anyone has any idea about how to take the old one out and replace it with a new one with that little clearance please give me a tip. The only thing I can think of is maybe tilt the tank when it is empty, but I don't think there is enough clearance to do that either.

I had a 3200 (94 I think) and had the starboard side sender replaced (always read full, even when empty). I don't know how they did it, but it was not reported by the marina to be a big challenge, so there must be a way.

By rule, there has to be an access ports to the senders and fuel fitings. TO be quite honest, I wouldnt replace them. I'd go with Floscan meters.
