When the engines were delivered a few weeks ago, I placed them inside a garage bay, since I was not ready to place them in the boat at that time. Now that it is time to lift them into the boat, I had to get them out of the garage, and out into the yard - about 300 feet around to the back of the boat. So, my brother and I used a long steel pry bar, lifted the 1st engine pallet slightly, and positioned some 3/4 pipe underneath, at the front of the pallet, and at the halfway point. Then we just gave it a push, and rolled it forward a few feet. As the rollers moved to the back of the pallet, we would stop, lift the pallet, reposition the rollers, and repeat. After about 5 or 6 times, the pallet/engine combination was far enough out in the driveway to work with.
I set up my engine hoist at this point, and lifted the pallet into the back of a pickup truck.
