Probably better off with 3 of you can get more help. A guy on each side and one in the back. I lifted the sun pad off my 25 outlaw a couple times. Not that, heavy more cumbersome

Two can do it, three is better. Do not tilt the sun pad all the way back when taking the nuts off the studs that hold it to the hinges, the hinges will dig into the gelcoat.

Does yours look like this? My 252 Islander is perfect except for this...I too have wondered how much hassle and weight is involved with taking off the sunpad...

UPDATE.....Sunpad was easily removed by myself. Backed my truck up to the stern of the boat. Raised sundeck nearly vertical. Removed all nuts but one on each hinge side and left remaining nut loose. Disconnected actuator from Sunpad. Lowered sunpad backwards toward top of truck and leaned it against a box on the swimdeck. Hinges did not contact gelcoat that way. Removed final 2 nuts from hinge/sunpad, worked studs from hinges, moved box from swimdeck, and lowered sunpad onto the bedcover of my truck. I'd estimate it weighs 100lbs. I had it off in 10 minutes. Will be re-doing wood around perimeter of sunpad over the winter. Injectors coming off next and being sent off for flow testing. Engine being pulled, installing new rear engine mounts, cleaning and repainting bilge, and installing new coupler while I'm there.

Removed bad wood today on my sunpad. Most bolts holding it were rusted on the T nuts. I will use bolt cutters on the remaining bolts. Planning on using plastic based wood product to replace original wood.

What is the bottom picture of?
How much wood is actually part of the sunpad? Just like a perimeter coaming or on the whole thing?

Thanks

Bottom pic is inside (top) of the sunpad with foam removed. The whole sunpad base is fiberglass. Just the outer perimeter has wood attached.
