I could just about lift a 76' Johnson 50hp off of my old mans boat at age 16. . So, yes you should be able.

doubt it. I can just lift my 20HP Yamaha on and off the transom on my own. It weighs 50kg. I'm not Geoff Capes, but I doubt I could manage anything bigger. Presumably a 50HP would be at least doublt the weight. My Yam is fairly new, and I would guess older engines were heavier.

I cannot lift my 2cylinder 2 stroke 40HP on my own, took two of us and even then it was heavy. Your Mercury blue band is a 4cylinder I believe, and they are heavy, probably best to get someone to help you, don't want to hurt your back. They are good engines by the way, mate of mine had one and they purr.

it's no probelm I can do it and i am nearly old. protect your car in case any fluids leak out. another hint it's a lot less painful if it clips your shins with the prop off and some bubble rap around the hub. Dont put the skeg on your foot either

I didn't take it that way - I didn't mean to be flippant - I was being serious (no offence ADS!). Good Luck with it.
