The engine weighs in excess of 50 kgs.
It's size and shape further complicates moving it.
It really should be a two person lift.
I am 6ft 3 and weigh 18 stone and find it an uncomfortable lift on my own.
I use a trolley to wheel mine from the garage to the car.
I lift it into the boot from the trolley.
As my sib is trailered I un hitch the trailer and swing it around so the boot is next to my transom.
Lift the Tohatsu from boot straight onto the transom.
Once secured I reattach the trailer and drive to the water.
You wouldn't want to carry one more than ten yards unless you have a chiropractor in the family lol!!!
