Post by Skipper_Worse » Sat Dec 19, 2015 4:31 pm

I need to get my patio door refusbished and repaired; plus I need to remove and re-install engines and plan to do so through the door opening. Does anyone have info regarding how to remove it, how is it fasteneded, what to look out for, what not to do etc.?

I replaced the rollers on my door when I had Ocean Belle.

In the door jamb are one or two adjusters - wind this in (or out) allowing the door to drop downward, then when fully down lift the door upward then draw the base outward.

Trend Marine sell the replacement rollers.

I was planning to remove not only the door but the entire frame as well. Any way to get engines out/in is a tight squeeze.

Sounds a big job, why are you removing the engines?
I assume you' ll have to use some sort of HIAB crane. If you get opportunity, I would love to see pics of the project when underway.

The deck of the flybridge, I think, is a soft patch - removable to allow the engines to be removed.

One owner I spoke with overhauled both his engines inside the cabin by raising them on long stud bars. Took him almost a day to get the engine to caring deck height, but still a massive saving on a crane and removing the fly roof.

I partially overhauled one of my gearboxes in the cabin, and kept the carpets clean.

I finally got the job done, today. Wasn't hard. Remove covering strips, then six screws top, six bottom. Otherwise just silicone/mastic to cut through and then wrestle the door frame from the superstructure moulding. Came away nice and cleanly, with not a lot of effort.
