Cheoy Lee 43 engine removal

G'Day Sailors one and all,
I'm enquiring if anyone has removed an engine from a Cheoy Lee 43 motor sailer? With a 120hp Ford Lehman, they have a heavy chunk of metal to remove. I can't see how it could be removed through the companion way. Most likely it would require one to cut the top off the pilot house in order to crane it out. Any suggestions please?

Sometimes you can’t take it all out in one piece. Sometimes you have to take off every accessory hanging off the block, and pass the parts through if it's too big.

I don't know your layout, and I could not find one on the web, so not sure if this helps...

On my boat the engine is under the cockpit, and at first glance it looks impossible to get out. The trick is to slide it forwards first into the main cabin. Then you lift it to the height of the cockpit sole and put rails under it to slide it backwards into the cockpit before lifting it from there. There is a small hatch cut in the top of the deck house to allow the cable from the crane arm to be lowered to the engine.

The point is, maybe the path out of your boat is a zig-zag like it is on mine? Can you see a way of going up in STAGES, sliding the engine backwards and forwards at each stage?
