That looks more like a job for a Saws-All to me!
It's better for that level of precision work!

Oh no a man on a mission! Don't cut too deep brother. Always remember when you have the chain saw in hand, you have the most dangerous tool in the shop! So be careful to not chop off something you can't live without! And never loan anyone that you like a chainsaw..

Thanks for the chainsaw tips ! I own 5 chainsaws and use them often , used them quite a bit building our house , i remember shocking the framers when i grabbed the chainsaw and cut all the plywood out of the window frames 12 in all in just a couple of minutes verses an hour with a skill saw on a ladder ...... lol wife wants a garden shed so out comes some logs and the chainsaw !

Well no more funky cabin ! It only took 2 minutes to cut the frozen steering cable and chain saw off the helm , and 7 minutes to chainsaw off the cabin with no damage to the boat except for all the screwholes that attached the cabin , now its off to the store for some fresh west epoxy and cabosile to fill all the holes
