thanks Capnblu,
I was thinking about using two 2 ton chain hoist. One (A) chain dropped through the hoist plate hole forward of the pedestal (located in the cockpit sole and one (B) in the middle of the companion way hatch. After raising the engine off the mounts with "A", I would start to take up on "B" to move the engine through the forward engine room door into the area aft of the galley sink cabinet. Taking up on "B" as I release "A". I must admit, I'm a little nervous being under 800 Lbs of swinging iron. Once the engine is in the companion way space (where the companion way stairs are), I could release hoist "A" and use hoist "B" to lift the engine high enough to change the pan gasket Do you think this would work? No pictures at the moment.
