    the last one we did like that, i kept cutting, right on up to the front storage compartment, so i could "flop" the whole steering / helm off to the side. it is much easier to get the the stuff up front of the motor, get teh carbs off, exh, ect.

    i had this particular ski sitting in the shop like this as we were doning it, and had a local customer come by with his to winterize, and you should have seen the look on his face when i told him this is what we have to do sometimes to get access. = priceless.
