I've discovered serveral cracks around the strut bracket and on further investigation it seems the glass around that area is weakened. I have a friend who has travelled the world fixing glass problems on yachts so it doesn't concern me too much.
The engine is all set to be lifted. Everything is unplugged etc. so forklift on saturday and out it comes.
Now looking at the mounts am I best to leave the mounts on the boat and just remove the big nut from the top allowing the engine to be lifted and not require re-alignment or shall I just undo the bolts holding the mounts to the hull and re align it afterwards?
Anyone have any tips? I assume there is no issue lifting the engine, tranny and V drive all together as one?
