Friday morning #16 progress

Been busy in the engine compartment. Have removed the old engine mounts and cut the coupling off the propeller shaft.

Have managed to get the propeller off and the shaft out (was able to borrow a propeller pull tool).

Still need to get the stuffing box off (makes a waterproof seal around the propeller shaft) and the cutlass bearing out.

Also cut away the oil sump that was blocking access to the bilge. Used our workshop vac to get the last water out.

Now got bilge cleaner fluid in there to hopefully make it look and smell better.

Had to buy a grab tool to reach the bottom and get all this junk out.
