I am yep (see my other recent thread for those questions lol) but I'm really trying to avoid turning it over as I really don't want to attempt taking the engine off.

I am going to make the stands quite tall though so I can work on the hull with the boat at a convenient height.

I got a friend with a sling off the back of a tractor's back actor to lift mine well high.

If you do anything to the bottom of the hull standing over it will more than compensate for the engine removal.....

Working with your hands above about shoulder height will last a matter of minutes before you want to stop.

I did my 24' zodiac 733 with a bunch of old tires (tyres?) and a few big young football (american style) players from my local college. I had a roller trailer. Pulling the engine off is easy if you have a auto engine hoist. I used one for a suzuki 250. Don't over design it. Here is a guy who purchased some commercial jacks. It's an 18' plywood and glass boat. Might weigh less than yours but not by much, Bateau2 - Builder Forums • View topic - Phantom 18 Repairs
