Doug (Boatally Insane) came over yesterday and helped me (read=he did all the work as evidenced by the pictures)
to pull my dead 454 out. We used his chainhoist on a tree he had used before
for his Checkmate. Considering I have the arch and a big windshield and we were in the middleof a cul-de-sac
it was not your average pull yet the actual pull took less than 30minutes.. The bacardi drinking that followed took a couple hours however. We might need to rethink the treehoist when I throw the 502 back in the 454s place. :p:

As guys, we are naturally good at fixing things.
Houses, cars, computers, garbage disposals,
washers/dryers, etc. etc.
The one thing we can't fix,
is a woman that's broken

Kudos BI - not too many like yourself left in this world. Helps me keep 'the faith.' :cool:

Originally that was my idea,to use a cherry picker inside the boat and then hoist it out, the radar arch sits right over the engine and because of the speaker+light+gps wiring its a biatch to remove. But in the end all it took was a big tree and a big truck.
