when the hatch is open on my boat, there is a nice big access into the ERbut not a lot of places to brace anything against
I think your engine room is just like mine? *You have a 38' Cali right? *Generator mounted across the stringers, just ahead of the main engines? *The yard lifted mine out with a cherry picker crane through the salon door (boat out of water of course). *
They took the outside door off the salon, lifted and removed both floor hatches in the salon over the engines. *They*stuck the telescoping crane mast through the door and lowered the hook. *The 7.5 kw Onan had a lifting eye that was balanced just right. *They removed the motor mounts, tied a tailing rope to the genny and lifted. *One guy sat on the front cabin floor and used the tailing rope attached to a come-along, through the front engine room access door to keep it from striking the engines. *Turning the genny sideways they gained clearance by allowing it to slide a little between the mains as it was lifted. *Once they had it in the salon, they retracted the boom and brought it right out the door! * Took me longer to take the sound shield off and disconnect plumbing and wiring, than it did for them to remove it from the boat.
*mine is in front of the stbd main, you could'nt just drag it out..
i am sure we will figure something out though.
