What did you end up with for internals? Carb, intake, exhaust?
Are you going with new accessories?
Thanks for the good wishes on our sea bus, we will see how long it lasts lol
I'm kind of partial to forklifts since I work at a forklift dealership.
Sideshifter makes all the difference. ( usually 8" back and forth)
Another use for a forklift is pulling drives.
Slide the forks together, put a couple of towels of the
forks and slide the drive off on to the forks.
I'm going to vote for the forklift. We have four of them at the marina I work at and although they're not quite as good as our gantry for pulling motors, they come in handy for all sorts of other things. (And yes, two of ours have side shifters for the forks.) Besides, you can bring the fork truck to the boat, but you have to bring the boat to the gantry. Just my 2 cents.
The "A" frame is the only way to go for a one man job, forklift moves and brings things to the chain falls,Now the limiting factor of the "A" frame is it's size.,I had a Boom for my 4 ton diesel forklift which could be used but again the there is the issue of controls and additional people involved.

I have a tool and die and metal stamping business. I have 3 5,000# Toyota fork truck. All have 3 stage mask that go 180" w/ side shift. I have a 12' boom that I can attach to the forks. We use them for mainly for loading trucks, moving steel and setting dies in presses. Occasionally for maintenance on press. But when it comes to needing to spit a die and handling things delicately. You can not beat a over head crane. Keep in mind if you use a fork truck to pull anything you'll need two people.
I Have both Make it easy to take boat of trailer or fork truck to move boat around jeff
