Re: [Amel Yacht Owners] Maramu engine access
Like David I have a pad that I use to make laying on the engine to work on it more comfortable. I actualy had a cushion made that is approx three and a half feet long by eighteen inchs wide two inches thick that I leave on top of the engine all the time, with no damage to it. It is covered in a heavy fabric, and I just remove the padding and wash it every once in a while.

I carry a rolled-up 3' x 3' piece of 1/4" EPDM that I lay over the engine if
I have to work on it while it's hot. It's still pretty warm but enables me
to work on things without getting burned. Our Maramu has the original
Perkins 4-154 and the underway maintenance at the front of the engine has
been almost exclusively limited to the raw water pump, which fortunately can
be accessed without bear hugging the engine. But we once blew out the raw
water pump v-belt, which unfortunately was number 3 inwards on the drive
shaft multiple pulley, so had to remove two other belts to replace the
broken one. That did require laying on the engine, and I was very glad for
the EPDM then.
