Engine mounts

Hey guys,
my rear engine mounts (yanmar 12SB), Ontario 28... seem to be quite high, one top stud is recesed in the bolt. and the opposite (front left) the rubber is degraded probably due to oil drips...

should I can I tighten them, would that change the pitch too much for the stuffing box etc...

also, what are your thought s on removing the engine, changing the rubber mount and repairing anything else under there ( the muffler is loose on its mount too..... all while in the water ??? or should I wait util the fall ?

Any help appreciated.

M.
