You have to start by taking both drives off ,then you can start with taking both engines out ,after that you can take the gimballs(transom housings) off.
Is this a midnight express boat ?

What are they going to do with the Midnight hull ?
The majority of members know how to install and remove inboard engines ,Maybe I was one of the first that came with an explanation.

Not sure what i will do with the hull sterling,It would appear to be quite heavy for its size,so i imagine it would take a fair amount of power to shift it at any great speed,

Hi Rock111
I take it that this is the boat from littlehampton marina you bought? What hull are you putting the 6lp engines in?

we will be fitting them in a scarab 38 kv,I believe the scarab hull is 3000kgs without motors,whilst i dont think it will be lightning fast,i would be happy with 45 knots max,we will have to wait and see,
