It's a v-drive transmission, the prop shaft is under the engine.

If only I were closer. Good luck with it though, I'm sure there are plenty of persons like myself that don't mind a fun project.

I turn down a C&C 38 at $33 K (In Washington NC). It ends up being sold at $20 K. One thing that turned me down, was the fact that I wasn't sure the Volvo (Here, it's a Yanmar) 3 cylinder engine could be pull out of the boat without dismantling the kitchen aft partition ??? Good luck

Absolutely. The drawers below the switch panel, which are located directly forward of the engine, are built to be lifted and removed. This allows forward access to the engine. Aft birth affords port access and cockbit starboard bench lifts to give access to starboard side.

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 !

The forward access point is where the engine gets pulled from. And yes it's a yanmar.
