I have removed alternator, water pump, starter, exhaust manifold, only thing external remaining is the trans which will come off before pulling it thru the companionway. I have no actual weight on this motor but my guess would be about 200lbs stripped, it's a two cylinder. If I don't have a helper to help on one end or the other, there will be some words to the effort. One good thing is, the bolts used on the mounts were sleeved, the studs don't protrude above the engine mount flanges. I was going to secure the engine from moving violently aft after coming off of the mounts by a rope secured to the mast step if I don't have an extra body.

I probably am as ready as I'm gonna be, but you know that haunting feeling of, 'what am I forgetting'? Thanx Valiente, didn't think about the flywheel...

I love being on an Even Keel WTF are YOU lookin at?????
