I think you have a Yanmar
& I was talking about pulling the engine OUT of the boat, not working around it. In a previous life, I purchased in Chicago, a racing
Chance 33 built in Germany
with a 3 cylinder Volvo MD3B
& I was able to pull it out of the boat easily with my boom & winch
. I had the 3 cylinders rebored & I put the Volvo back as easily. Cheers !
