Under my home I would like to build a storage area for my jet skis, but I have run into a Cross Brace. Can I remove this if I sheer all the walls around???

See picture of brace...

Thanks

If that cross brace is there, it's for a reason. Tho it may not be part of the original planned design, it could have been added because of structural issues during the construction or something that started to occur after. I would not touch those braces.
