Theres a little Yanmar 1GM10 Diesel in my 22ft yacht and im wondering if anybody has lifted by hand an engine of this size out of a yacht. The boat is out of the water with the mast down. It has a large full length keel so its a long way down to the ground. Obviously I will have a friend to help lift. I know its common to winch it out on the boom but thats not possible in my case. Am I mad to even think of lifting this beast? Cheers!

(the engine in the photo is an example of a Yanmar 1gm10 it is not my engine)

Re: Can you lift this little beast?

Would use winch as it never goes to plan in tight spaces.or if it snags on something

Metal pole & two people is what I have used to lift them out of my boat. A wooden frame with the pole between with a small block & tackle intially then manual.

Re: Can you lift this little beast?

My brother and I lifted a Volvo MD1 out of my boat with a 2 by 6 on our shoulders, chained to the engine, and set it in the cockpit(on plywood) and then moved it to the dock. I could not have done it this way from the deck to the ground. I think the Volvo was much heavier than your Yanmar. Maybe you could back a pickup truck with a lumber rack , up to your boat and use the lumber rack to take some of the load. Good Luck. _____Grant.

You could take the transmission and flywheel off save some weight.

Re: Can you lift this little beast?

My first choice would be a forklift with a boom attachment.
My second choice would be 3 or 4 guys with some wooden planking & some ropes.
My third choice would be dis-assembly of the motor for easy removal.

Re: Can you lift this little beast?

I had my two 3GM30 engines replaced by 3YM30 last winter. They were all moved in and out of the boat by hand.

I suspect that they might be a bit heavier to move than a 1GM10
