Yanmar 2GM20F Oil pan leaks

I notice oil drips from under my 2GM20F even when engine hasn't run for a week or two. On closer inspection (with a small mirror) I see oil forming at the oil pan gasket right under the engine. There was no oil drips/oil stain from higher up the engine body. Question is can I remove the oil pan and change the gasket as is without hoisting the engine out? I think I can access all the 16 or 17 bolts (10mm AF ?) underneath.
Meantime, I've retighten all the oil pan bolts (some weren't very tight) and will check it again coming weekend to see if it is still leaking.
