    I guess so, although I'm kinda OK stooping there as I'm not as tall as you. I can remove the air filters to get better access to above the engines for the fuel filters that are in the V etc, but a lifting deck above would be a nice luxury!

    good stuff,
    we did the same in our ER many years ago, also in the UR, I can't emagine not having full standing hight there anymore,
    as our engine room has become a real workshop.
    I didn't realise that this was possible in these sleek ferretti's

    Sleek? More like fat. Ferrettis are very broad in the beam which is what allows the standing headroom in the middle
