Re: how to pull a motor?
I can't tell where the second eye hook is, but if it's nearby and a straight unobstructed shot, I would probably try and fabricate a steel tube anchored to the the two eyes, lift the motor off the pads with a small comealong and then slide the comealong down the steel tube to where it can be lifted out of the boat. You can remove alternators, starters and other engine accessories to minimize the motor's weight and overall dimensions before the big lift as well. That's all imaginary right now, as I can't see the layout, but I have seen some creative temporary structures built to move motors in boats.
