Thread: Outboard motor bracket for transport 4 stroke

    Default Outboard motor bracket for transport 4 stroke

    Cartop boat transport, how to carry outboard and keep lifting to a minimum?

    Trying to find a way to transport my 81# 4 stroke outboard without tweaking my back! neat design
    for inside pickup carry. Shipping would be extreme I imagine. Easy to modify a hand cart and keep power head above prop to prevent water in oil in 4 stroke.

    Would like a way to mount a bracket for a receiver hitch, that you could tilt or swivel out of the way to allow you to access pick up canopy.any ideas or links? Or good fabricator that could make one?

    How about something like a lifting davit with block and tackle that could be mounted to the hitch? A number of marine hardware companies make them. Maybe use one as a model?

    I've always wanted to use my basic motor stand, but have a Tommy Gate on my pickup. A little too expensive to justify just for an outboard motor though.
