My work schedule for the next 6 weeks is crazy hectic!!!

Suggestions anyone??
I did it with a guy I use around here. We;
-Took the drive off
-Took the hatch off
-Hooked engine to the a backo bucket. I imagine a chain hoist or anything would do
-Unhooked the engine mounts only not even the wiring harness
Pulled the engine about 5-6 inches forward and he gymnasticed himself back there changing it.
-Put all back.

Took about 3 hours one evening and greased the whole thing

Lost the seawater pump to both air conditioners.
Had to listen to griping by spoiled family who thought an 83 degree cabin temp was unbearable...

Hydrocruiser:

Buy a boat. In fact, buy MY boat.

I need to sell it so I can buy Greg's Formula.

Well, our weather has been trashed. Just ducked the rain last night. It sprinkled here and poured 3 miles down the road. We got lucky but today it is 61deg and cloudy. It is COLD. Big puffy black clouds, it looks like fall here And feels like it to At least it is dry, saw some good fireworks last night, more tonight, this time from the boat. I have jackets, screw Mother Nature.
