Default Engine remove/replace on SCA?

Has anyone had experience on engine removal and replacement on an aft cabin model (SCA)? I like to understand how crane access is gained especially in the case of the starboard engine.

Gbriand, I moved the discussion on post time to its own thread in the Forum Help section:

Typically, this is done is phases. A portable lifting crane is often setup in the cabin spanning the engine compartment. This lifts the engine up out of the compartment. sometimes they will use cribbing hold the engine, then a set of boards from the cribbing to slide the engine out the cabin hatch. some guys have more elaborate systems.

Don't know what model you have, but i have a 46 SCB, and motors are in the salon, and the hatch is too small, like shrew said in his post, We had to take the engine down to a small block, we tried to do with the head on, but could not get past the stringers, So basically, the motor was taken down to the dimensions of the opening, no head, no fuel lines, had to set up a A frame inside after motor was out, had to move A frame to get motor part way out of the salon then had to use a crane with a extension to come and grab it.. We left the bell housing on to remove, but was too long, and had to bring front of the motor out first then slide froward for rear to come out.. ( pain in the ass) so just put it back in with stripped down, hope that helps
