Did you ever see what has to happen to Repower an aft cabin boat? I suggest you donít watch.
You need to get access to the ER through the side doors, not through the big sliding aft door on a sedan style. Not difficult at all, though a big V8 will require the door to be wider than for a straight 6.
My 6 cyl swap took about 4 hours of Truck with HIAB time to get 2 oldies out and 2 newer engines in. In the process of a repower, that was one of the very minor parts.
