My family camps for about two months during the summer. Set up is Grumman sportboat on top of truck pulling camper. I would like to take along a small four stroke with us, concern is motor riding in the back of the truck for a period of time. Motor would be placed on correct side.
My question is what problems have you experienced transporting a motor this way? I want the reliabilty of being able to slap in on the sportboat and go. How tempermental are four strokes in the 3-5hp range to being laid on their sides? I'm leaning to Yamaha, Honda.
