Taking an inboard engine out of a boat is supposed to be a rare event but this is becoming annual. The only good thing about that is we’re getting good at it. The motor weighs about 160 lbs and my back is not even close to being up for that. Simple mechanics (simple enough even for me) saved the day. Fortunately it is light enough to slide sideways on the horizontal quite easily.
And if it doesn’t run any better next spring it can look forward to a new career as the number one anchor!
