Surely you know if your engine is diesel or gas, no? Oday used universal diesels and they were called "atomic" diesels back then, it's a kubota based engine and westerbeake is basically the same engine.

Pictures would help show others how the engine is placed, I've never been inside a Oday center cockpit so I don't know. Now may be the time to set back and think before rushing into tearing things apart.

$4500? get references!

Cockpit floors are commonly cut out and reinstalled to be removable you would need support and water proof gasketing around the perimeter for sure. I've a friend that did it to his endeavor
