Situation has now moved on and engine being removed this week. A frame is being constructed to locate under engine for sliding into saloon.  Lifting tackle to come through sink aperture.
Reason; following a hard grounding hull is potentially damaged below engine which needs to be removed to enable full inspection and repair if necessary. Other obvious damage noted across this area of boat. Four keel bolts are also located under the engine and these need to be rebedded and tightened. Fortunately insurers will pick up the tab. If nothing else I will have a nice clean bilge.

Knoxan, curious to know why you need to pull the engine out? On board Ambition we had to pull the transmission off the back end as well as the flywheel and found a way around having to pull the engine. It wasn't easy but it did get done with the assistance and blessing of Queen Long.

H46 engine removal

Hi
Has anyone experienced removal of an H46 engine. Ideally the joinery/sink unit around the engine should be removed but it is not obvious how to do that. Removal of the sink to allow lifting sling access to assist lifting forward into the saloon seems to be the only way.

Thanks
Andy
