I'm with you Aus Can. Love everything about my boat except the engine room dimensions. 2 teenage boys come in handy though, they love learning boat maintenance and crawling the bilge is well within their agility level. Told the wife last weekend we will just have to buy a boat with a full stand up ER when our youngest moves on.

My engine room, or hole as I call it, is pretty clean and accessible but if I drop something into the narrow, deep bilge below I'm like AusCan but without the Orangutan. I may never see it again.

No, it's a soft ice cream machine. I put the Algae X label on it as a gag. It makes 123 gallons an hour and since I only hold a total of 200 gallons, I usually sell the over flow when in an anchorage. Thanks for pointing that out, Don. I had almost completely forgot about it.

Seahorse did a professional job installing all that stuff.

Mark, if you are going to post pics of that immaculate engine room, at the very least you can Photoshop a meal and some utensils on the floor since it is clean enough to eat off of.

OK, this is an old thread but here's my engine room

The hatch is in the middle of the salon, and there's also an entrance (not pictured) by lifting up the stairs. That entrance goes to the utility room that houses the water heater, fuel filters, valves, etc... The utility room has a waterproof bulkhead with a sealed door to the engine room.

I use the salon hatch as its easy to drop down into between the engines. I wish it were taller, as its only on the knees height.

Entries from the second stateroom and lazarette. Not stand-up but plenty of room to work.

It seems that every Defever engine room I've seen is nice and tall.

He sure did a good job with the design!

Hey, I thought this was "Show us your ER."

RickB, show us your ER, not someone else's ER.

Having helped a friend remove and refit the engine in a Resort 35, a Cuddles derivative, I confirm it is largely top access,though it`s good access with the engine out. The rather large mechanic, paid by an insurer to do the work, kept disappearing to other jobs leaving work instructions.
IGs use a trained octopus to adjust stern glands. AndyG and I share one, retrieve the octopus before starting the engine.

Bruce - If that octopus wants some more work, my prop shaft gland needs a nip up.

Actually, the access to my stern gland and rudder linkage, etc is great, as long as I don't put on a kilo.

With all my air expelled and a jar of vaseline, I can just squeeze through the built in cockpit seat opening, down to the huge void below. Once I'm down there, it's like a secret hidden room.
It allows me to sit fully upright, astern of to the rudder shaft. Luxury! (although anything dropped still slides down into the black hole)

I love the shots of those big yacht engines personally. Recall both of those shots as your avatar previously. If your taking requests Rick, do ya have any ER shots of an old fire boat or harbor tug? From back when the "oiler" was a busy man down below.
