I don't have the walk-through, so I won't be much help, but I did reove my Westerbeke 4-107 by first remove all attachments and then sliding it up a plywood ramp to my companionway. I then raised it with a block on my boom. I very well suported the boom with slings from a couple of halyards above as I was worried about bending it, but I had no problems. I slid the engine to the back of the boom and swung it to the dock. I replaced it with a Yanmar 56hp,-I always felt under powered with the westerbeke, especially with the hp sapped by that huge paragon transmission. Good luck, Aythya crew
