My livewell was already there just not the plumbing. I do not think it will just pull out, mine is glassed in underneath with a thin sheet of fiberglass. I drilled a 4" hole in the front left corner of the storage area under the bow seating area to gain access to install the hoses and fittings, then put a 4" screw off access plate over hole. I also drilled a 6" hole in the front of the ski locker to gain access to the bottom of the livewell tub and put a cover over that as well, just be careful with this one because there is a bulkhead you have to go through and you want to be sure you are in the middle of it so you don't compromise its integrity. Seal any exposed wood you drill through is very important as well. Hope this helps.
