Finally

Good morning folk! I've had my 40' Mainship and been a member of this forum for quite awhile....but here's the FINALLY part: I've now retired and can spend time working on the boat. A little history for you, my port Perkins had the audacity to throw a rod through the block last time we took the boat out (about 2 years ago). It took us that long to arrange to pull the engine, repair the block, rebuild the engine etc etc etc. Now all that is completed and we're scheduling the reinstall. Hopefully that will all be completed and sea trialed by July (I've found that any type of marine technicians work on their own schedule..ya just don't push them, lol). Anyway in the next week I'm going to list then prioritize all of my projects. Once that is complete, I'm sure I'll be picking your collective brain power. I've seen a lot of good info on this forum, as well as some "what?" info. Any way, it should be an adventure. Thanks in advance for your help!

Wyoboater,
Fantastic. Glad you are to the 'reassemble in the reverse order', stage. I hope everything goes smoothly and quickly.
I agree with your observation about 'marine technicians'. There are times I have waited almost a year for their arrival. Of course, the problems did not affect the safety nor the ability to leave the dock.

Port Engine removal pics

Here ya go....hard to tell in the pics but there is 1/2 inch clearance on either side in the doorway. The pic that looks just like a rusted block in the hole the piston rod left...putting it back should be even more fun!
