This is what I've found.
4 screws from the front, can't tell on the back. Maybe under the sticker?
Use a good set of hex drivers, MIP is preferred. If you strip a screw, you are done.

Mystery solved, the end bell is screwed on. Love the videos from this guy, but the first minute is truly a WTF moment
Go to about 5:30 min into the video, and he is taking apart a 2030, identical to yours, just shorter.
You owe me a beer
While we’re at it. I took the genesis out yesterday and only got 57 mph on 6s with two different battery and prop setups. I tried two props, a dasha.. prop made for the boat and an 45mm aluminum one. Started with the aluminum and puffed a battery. The boat was surging in power. Like a scale boat with a bad fuel pump. Put another set of batts in and dashaboat prop and same 57mph and surging. They were zees 7000mah 120c. Newer batteries. I downloaded the castle app. But don’t know what I’m looking at. I’m thinking I need better batteries?

Edit CNHL black is ok as well, above 70C on CNHL markings will hold up.
I'm not sure the G series will fit my boat. I did purchase some SMC batteries (6) so hopefully I will get some better results. I am going to pickup a few of the cnhl batteries this weekend once I take some measurements. (They have a little sale going on).For CNHL the black series is ok but the G+ 70c is best.
Some others like the 100c or 120c series are lower output than the 70c. (I know that makes not sense but its the reality)
I pushed my 70c G+ packs routinely in the 500-650 amp range all last year and still are solid packs today.
I might have missed it but what electronics are you running in the boat? Also, how big is the boat? I have an old 57" enforcer I am thinking of converting to electric.The epoxy is still hardening but I got the stuffing tube in, better motor mount, new ESC mount spot, and new battery tray.
The new layout requires a little more aggressive bend in the tube than I like but it should still work just fine. It is hard to see here, but there is the silver piece that fits into the stinger. A short 9/32 tube that is bonded to the hull. Slip-fit inside of that is a normal 1/4" tube for the 3/16" flex cable.

***Disclaimer this boat has been through 5+ setups and is from the 80's nitro/gas era so its not pretty anymore ***
You can barely see it towards the front but I poured in some 2 part-expanding closed-cell foam. This stuff hardens rock solid and will help hold the hull together during 60+ mph crashes.
The new layout allows the lipo to go up front. I installed a 300mm OSE CF battery tray in there which goes waaay into the nose. Its longer than needed, but hey why not. I have mentioned this before, but this new layout allows me to put more weight forward so that I can virtually eliminate the use of the trim tabs. This should net a higher speed with the same setup. The old setup required a lot of trim tab use to keep the nose down.

Old layout for comparison where the battery(s) sit over the rear:

I have Friday and Monday off to make this a 4 day weekend. Hoping to get at least 1-2 days out to test this rig.
Next week I'll pick back up working on the rigger to get it going.
Mine is an unknown 42" boat from the late 80's. It has an XLX2 and TP4070. A Castle Hydra would work good and probably would want a 56 series motor for a big boat like that enforcer.I'm not sure the G series will fit my boat. I did purchase some SMC batteries (6) so hopefully I will get some better results. I am going to pickup a few of the cnhl batteries this weekend once I take some measurements. (They have a little sale going on).

Continued on that today.Great write up on the LiPo comparison Liberty! …crazy how that cheap 6s dropped to a lower under load 12.1V voltage level than the better 4s at only dropping down to 14.4V under load!!!
It can do 2 runs max and gets hot.63 mph seems great on 4s with a heavy built boat. What kv is the motor, and is it just a saw run boat or can you run it around and not get too hot at that speed?
