Access to Sea Water Pump & Drive Belt problem

(am posting this on behalf of user Metalhead)

I am having a tough time finding out how to remove the drive belt and the sea water pump from this engine. It seems the 2 bolts that might be the mounting bolt for the pump are located under a bracket that seem to support the pump. It appears there is a panel under the cabin steps that might be removable to access the front of the engine. I am having no luck removing this panel Am I all wet trying to access the front of the motor through this area under the step? I removed the screws that were in that panel but the panel does not seem to be loose. There is a threshold to the cabin that appears to be holding the panel in place. Any ideas about engine access from the cabin on my 1973 28 ht express
