Motor Mount Removal

Need to access the casting plug located beneath the port side motor mount on a 2000 Prostar 190/Indmar GM V8. I understand this means lifting that side of the engine just enough to get the weight off the mount so it can be moved out of the way. Never having dealt with this I am looking for the voice of experience to confirm my thinking.

1. It looks like removing 2 bolts in the stringer and 3 in the block will let me slide the motor mount out of the way.

2. Planning to lift using a strap/cable through the front of the exhaust manifold/water jacket or place a small hydraulilc jack on the stringer beneath which ever is more stable and access freindly. Thinking I am probably only supporting maybe 300 pounds and the jacket should support the weight.

Thanks in advance

The engine weight over 500 pounds - I personally would get something to hold more load
