Thank you m, Mike. Shop vac sounds good.

Did a bit more poking around.  There is a hole towards the aft end of the
forward battery tray.  Using a wooden dowel to measure the distance, it
appears that there is just over 6" from the inside surface of the tray to
the top of the bilge!  At the forward end of the forward battery tray, it's
less than 1/2".  There's some space under those trays.

Have not ripped out the floor of the cabin. How are the trays attached
to.....to what?
