Removing Engine from Beneteau Oceanis

I'm getting to remove the engine from My Beneteau Oceanis 351 for a re-built.
Unfortunatly I don't see how to remove the upper fixed section of the stair that will give me more room to work.

Any tought

Thanks

Re: Removing Engine from Beneteau Oceanis

My P28 was repowered with a diesel and it is apparent the previous owner simply cut out the entire fixed companionway support board, which included the swing up stair/ladder portion. He then installed additional attachment hardware fittings so the entire companionway board could be removed and replaced in the future. It is handy now for engine work - I rarely ever swing the stairs/ladder portion up.

I've seen one picture of the 351 stairs, and it looks like they are similar to those on my 331. After removing the bottom section, there are likely 3 or 4 screws on each side going sideways through the underside flange. Not easy access but doable.

Re: Removing Engine from Beneteau Oceanis

I removed the engine in my 400 (lot easier). I'm sure that there is a way to remove the section as i have found that Beneteau's disassemble quite easily from my experience.
It was amazing how my engine squeezed right out; i never thought it would at first look.

Do you need to take out the top section for the engine to clear pulling straight forward?

I made a sled that i placed in front of the engine stringers (same height as stringers)then used my boom to lift the engine as i pulled it forward onto the sled. Once forward i craned the engine and tranny out of the boat. That was scary. Over 400 lbs suspended over the boat.

Re: Removing Engine from Beneteau Oceanis

It looks like from the pictures i observed on sailboat listings that your removal is just like mine.
Make the sled and slide it forward. You will need to lift it up to the hatch; then slide it back thru your companionway before it will clear your hatch. It will fit thru your companionway as Beneteau designed it that way. You'll have about 3/4 inch on both sides.

Hopefully you can get into a well and have someone crane it out. I don't think i would try with the boom. That's some weight. Or, disassemble the engine.
