The day has finally come for some serious lifting to be done. Armed with a proper bit of kit and a plan we set too.
Andrew once again with is all terrain fork lift
First in was the generator. This was the one I acquired last year. Its a Vetus GHS8 8 KVa or 6.5Kw.

Next in was the big one, the engine.
If you look closely you can see the mounts I made yesterday
Gently does it
Easing it in
|Vetus DT44 114hp|
In safely, ready for final positioning
My mounting size calculations were spot on :-)
Then it was time to put the batteries in.
The forklift delivered them to the rear deck
It was then simply a job of manually lifting them in to the battery box. You will see 2 M10 ring eyes screwed into the terminal threads. Obviously a non conductive strap was used.

In. And under the storage lockers secure against the bulkhead
