I hoisted the engine up and into the Rasmus today with the help from my two daughters. It took all of 30 minutes. It went in without a hitch. But (there is always a but isn't there) the engine is designed to sit at an angle so the four flexible engine mount bolts are also tilted on the same angle. From what I have read that is not a good thing. I have contacted Stan from Beta Marine to ask him what the next step is. I am hoping he says, "Oh don't worry about that Pat, it won't cause any problems at all." Anyway I have a couple of pics below.
I had to take the exhaust elbow off for the engine to fit in the hatch. That was not a problem. Other than that it was a smooth operation. Cheers.
