    Still negotiating on 441 with 480 hp V drives. The Racor fuel filters do not see easily accessible from the engine room. How do 441 owners check filters and change elements when needed? Is there access from Salon storage area?

    Hey Dave, there is no access from the salon area. You simply craw on the outside area of both engines port & starboard to get to them. Hope this helps. Mike...

    That sounds like a 6 beer operation

    Dave- I'm 6' 3" and have discovered that regular Yoga exercises help greatly when doing boat chores.

    Sorry for the late reply,

    There are two removable access covers in the salon lazaretto on the engine room bulkhead.

    Hey Andy, thanks for the input. I was not aware of that. I will definitely take a closer look at it next time on down there. It would be great to have access from that area..
    Happy Boating, Mike...
