Default New to Me - Z302! But....the cabin wont drain!

I just got the Z302 delivered to me yesterday. It came to NY from Texas. i bought it from a fellow member. Beautiful boat and i cant wait to put it in the water this weekend. But, I am dealing with a couple of issues first. The cabin drain is plugged. So, I pulled up the floor in the cabin and tried to use pressurized water to blow out the drain hose. That did not work. I tried coat hanger, that did not work. I even tried a plumbers snake. Still nothing.

The plug is out by the drive and the water is draining really slow and the front of the boat is way up, so i know that is not the issue.

So, i decided to pull up the floor in the cockpit area to see if i can find the blockage. I removed the seats, and all the screws holding the center floor panel in place. None of them are broke but the floor wont come up!! the end by the cabin comes up but something is still holding the end by the engine compartment.

Is there hidden screws some place? Do they use some sort of adhesive on the end to keep the floor in place?

Any help or suggestions would be greatly appreciated!

thank you in advance.
