Installing new Etech 25 and need to use hoist to lift onto my boat. Are there lift eye points and tool for this? First post!

There is a 'loop' on the engine, towards the rear right under the cowl.  Take a strap and sling it through there.  Good Luck!  Thats how I did it:

After that picture, I am not going to send pictures of my workshop to clarify the text below....

But if you add a line from a strongpoint near the tiller to the hoistline, you can tilt the engine to a more vertical position. That worked well on my 50 hp. 

To prevent scratching the paintwork, you can use a wooden beam and place it where the clamps are so that it sticks out horizontally. Two lines on the left- and righthand side to tilt the engine.
(hope this is clear, not really sure about the correct English words...)

Thanks for the work area comment.  Right now its not clean in the garage.  Matter of fact a cluster as I've got beam material jammed in there and currently looking for a 20ft section to construct another hoist setup.  Back on topic, I just lift and tilt it by hand when doing so.  I could have ran a strap, for a perfect lift, but works fine.  Perhaps when I drill my holes to bolt the motor to the transom I'll choke the front carry like handle to lift.  Thanks for the idea AquaPlanning.

Make sure the anti ventilation plate is at least an inch or more above the bottom of the "V" of the boat bottom. Should be worth a couple of MPH.

V as in Keel, or V as in Flatest portion bottom of boat?  Just curious because the boat is a slight v with a flat little plate area for it to ride on (IPS Lund hull).
