We got the engine back in yesterday. We had a real problem with getting the engine mounting's aligned (turns out the guy who shot blasted them had put the stern mounting back together incorrectly - the rubber was under the engine mounting! Plus the stern mounting are handed - we had them on the wrong sides). But after a few hours of cursing and persevering it's, located and bolted down.

Next job (today) is to reconnect the wiring loom and start her up. Then engine alignment, that's going to be fun (we haven't yet put the prop shaft through so I don't think perfect engine alignment matters too much yet).

Here are some photos of yesterday's exploits (note the incorrectly fitted stern engine mountings)...
