I found this video very helpful in understanding how this gets done in the yard.



Not sure about the balance challenges with a boat on the water but the three basic "equipment phases" appear to be:

1. Gantry up above the floor
2. Dolly to go through the door
3. "Pick it" off the boat (crane, forklift, etc)

Install is the reverse. Sounds easy eh?

If you do end up taking a video this process on your installation I'm sure many boaters like me would find it very valuable.

Can you find out who removed it in the first place, if the prev. owner doesn't know maybe the yard where he kept it might, or maybe some invoices in the paperwork files, if any, on the boat may say.
good luck!

Here is how I did an engine swap in the water. 30 ton crane, a 24 foot house beam attached at the centre. Engine swivel mount at one end and a skid of interlock bricks at the other stabilized with a chain fall so we could tip the beam up and down. We walked the boat forward and back in the slip to slip the engine in the door then lowered it by raising the brick counterweight with the chainfall. Picked the old engine out and then put the new one from Tony Athens in after swapping the transmission over. 3 hours for the crane and operator and 8 hours for one mechanic and 4 hours for another. Started at 8 am and was turning and burning at 4 pm. most of the time was reattaching the alternator, aftercooler etc. we had to remove to get it out the door.

Punctuation? It would make it a lot easier to figure out what you are saying.

Ahhhhh! Just was back three weeks ago for a funeral and coulda dropped in. Would be more than happy to pitch in. Now Iím over in Canaveral getting ready to head to the Bahamas.
In the meantime, have you talked with Prieto in Slidell? Not far from you and are experts at getting an engine in or out of a boat.
