The bulkhead between the mid cabin and the engine bay is structural. It supports the deck above and the port and starboard hulls laterally. Without the bulkheads, the boat will flex like a plastic childrens wading pool.
With the bulkhead compromised, I certainly wouldn't life the boat in the slings of a boatlift. If fact, you'll notice the "Lift" or "slings" markers on the exterior of the hull line up with this specific bulkhead.
There is a reason the mechanic said the engine needed to be removed.
