Re: Engine removal

It often helps to remove components that enlarge the package.. alternator, heat exchanger, starter, etc.. anything that 'sticks out', and can be taken off in place. This reduces the weight and bulk of what you're trying to pull out of there.

But like jimgo I'm wondering if you mean the companionway... but not familiar with the way the engine's installed in those boats.
