    Default Should I use a transom saver? 40hp on 16' Lund

    I've got a manual tilt/tiller 40hp Yamaha 2-stroke on a 16'Lund SSV.

    Should I be using a transom saver for trailering? Or will the tilt lock suffice?

    Any thoughts?

    With all the frost heaves on Alaska roads I would not, unless you carry a lot of insurance.

    I now use these wedges, because my transom is too far back for a transom saver to work. They work great so far:

    For the sake of a few $$$$ a transom saver is a very good investment IMHO.

    If possible always use a transom saver. Roads can be harder on boats than the water.

    I've always used one (30 years).
