Yes, I forgot the aftermost engine component was not the
transmission, but the shaft generator, which I believe was standard
equipment. Have you found a way to wedge yourself under the forward
cockpit lip on either/both of the port or starboard sides so that
you can inspect/repair from the side, or do you end up leaning over
the engine to service items mounted on the front of the engine?
BTW, the boat I inspected is not mine, my wife and I are prospective
purchasers. A fellow south Floridian was kind enough to show us his.

use a magnet , hook or some type of grabber tool that mechanics use.
The placement of your engine is the same as on my 1981 Maramu. Do
you have a propeller shaft generator between the trans and shaft
seal as does mine? Bill Klein, SV POPEYE

that troubles me is access to the front of the engine and accessto
the deep bilge. I am 6'1" 210 lbs and could only reach the frontfun
prospect on a hot engine). There seemed to be no way I couldreach
into the bilge.of
frame to get to the front of the engine? Also, how to you removea
dropped item from the bilge or change the bilge pump and/orswitch?
10" aft. Seems unlikely, but I was wondering if this soundstypical
or if the (original) engine could have been mounted unusuallyfar
