Probably a wise decision.

BTW, the other problem with using your boom is that the weight of the engine put a lot of stress on the gooseneck, in a direction the gooseneck usually doesn't see a lot of stress in...and it could break.

You know what the first rule of sailing is? ...Love. You can learn all the math in the 'verse, but you take
a boat to the sea you don't love, she'll shake you off just as sure as the turning of the worlds. Love keeps
her going when she oughta fall down, tells you she's hurting 'fore she keens. Makes her a home.

I lifted my MDIIB motor out of my Rival 32 a number of times. If you are already on the hard, and using jackstands, I wouldn't bother with using the boom and the main halyard to lift the motor out. The first time I lifted my motor was when she was in her cradle and I hired a small boom truck to lift the motor and put it into the back of a small pickup. The cost was minimal and there was no hassle. The other times I lifted the motor I used a 4"x4" across the companionway and used a "come along" hoist. No problem whatsoever.

With respect to rebuilding the engine, I did that myself as well, everything was within original specifications, but the block had to be replaced as it rusted out. That was 6 years ago and the engine has been very dependable since. My advice to you would be to make sure you take your time, keep a clean workbench, label everything and keep components together and of course make sure you have the workshop and parts manual.

Good luck.

In the most recent issue of Good Old Boat magazine, there is an article concerning your exact question with photographs and commentary, although the engine happens to be an old Atomic 4.
