Crawling into an engine space doesn't appeal to me. Prefer dropping down through hatches with access port, starboard, and above. If I had a grander boat, I'd prefer a 6+foot door and ceiling headroom in the engine room. Don't feel short-changed, since drop-down access gives me at least four feet of clearance above the head, with engine compartment below the pilothouse.
