Oil Check MainShip

This might be a stupid question but here goes;
I have a 99 MainShip with twin Yanmars. It seems I'm to fat and old to reach the dipstick on the starboard engine. I took off all floor covers and still no dice. Does anyone have a secret way to either get to the dip stick or a method to modify it so it would be easier in the future? One of my skinny grandsons lives 2 hours away so it's a bit hard to get him to the slip in a timely manner.

Thanks in advance

Don't know your engine but some engines can have the dipstick on either side.
Ask your dealer if your engine can have the dipstick relocated or if there is a kit for another unit.

They have a small dip stick on the inside plus the regular dip stick on the outside. I can check both engines from the center "hallway" in the engine room. It's central to the engine about 1/2 way down. Maybe it's an option? Looks like a small dip stick.
