I'm not sure how to interpret "Info & documentation", but in summary:
I had already cruised my boat with the functioning , but underpowered oil leaking Westerbeke for 15 years before I decided to repower with the Yanmar. I removed the big Paragon transmission and all attachements to the block before sliding the Westerbeke 4-107 (remaining) up a plywood ramp from a "come-a-long on my mast to a point under my companioway where I hoisted it with block and tackle up to my supported boom and slid it to the boom's end where I swung it to a pallet on the dock and pulled it away with a small truck,- 'sold the Westerbeke for one grand. Once my engine room was empty I replaced the fuel tanks and made all clean, white and bright. I had the new Yanmar professionally installed after my prep. in 2000 on the hard. I now have 5,325 hours on my wonderful Yanmar 4JH3E. Take care and joy, Aythya crew
