The engine
I rigged up a block and tackle across the companionway. Felicity and I maneuvered it out on to a plank in the cockpit. From there it went up to a set of stairs beside the boat. MD6A.jpg (50637 bytes)

This is our high tech shaft alignment tool - thread spool Spool640.JPG (25971 bytes)
Tool in action. It is pushed into the shaft log to support the shaft. Alignment was easy once Steve suggested that I use the forward most original mounting bolt  for the front mount of the new installation. The engine aligned automatically. The bearer was easily tapped. I forgot to take more pictures as it went very quickly. Spool Installed 640.JPG (37935 bytes)
