Re: Perkins 6-354 Repower

Personally, I would not. Too heavy even if using another halyard to the boom where you are attaching the "come-a-long" or handy billy. I have lifted up to a Perkins 4.236 this way, but a 6.354 is too heavy. One of the boat yards here in Bayou Chico, FL will lift an engine & place it in your truck or trailer for only $100.
