Changing belt on Catalina 30

I was recently told that is is impossible (or extremely difficult) to change the engine belt on my 1988 Catalina 30, which has the Universal 25 diesel engine, without structural changes to the engine compartment.
Is that posible?
Anybody with experience on this issue, please advise. Thanks!

Don''t dispare, if worst comes to worst you might try a link belt that can be made up to length and joined in place. See harborfreight.com and keyword ''link belt''

Thats a bunch of BS.. I changed the belt on my 30 a couple of thims when I owned it. It''s a little tricky getting access but not impossible. Loosen the alternator and pry with a broom handle to make belt slack and slip it off with a long screw driver or coat hanger..
