    Default Outboard Motor Stand

    I was looking for a stand to buy via google and came across this stand. They are simple and easy, and for about $20 and an hour, your stand is done. The only thing I did different was make it 36" wide instead of 24 so I can put two motors on it. I picked up the wheels at AIH as well. Also, if you wanted to hang a long shaft on it, I would add 6" or so to the uprights. If this was already posted, sorry, I just thought it was pretty slick.

    I made one very similar to that last year for a 40hp outboard I have. It works great, makes moving and storing my motor easy. Good idea on making it wider. I could store my dingy motor on it as well.

    Spoiled one,


    The link or document is actually posted, it is right next to the picture (click on the PDF file and it should open) if you can't open it let me know and I am try another way but that is all the detail on the link. Seems to work very well. the Motor is 115lbs plus I stood on it too and it held the motor and me :-) So I know it'll hold at least 320lbs....

    Nice stand. Made a couple similar stands for two of my outboards. Work great.

    I went to U-Haul on Kenai Spur, bought a wooden dolly to move furniture for $19.00, I layed my 50 hp extra motor on it and it rolls around the shop easily, and I can just roll it under the table and it is out of the way. Another Idea to store the motors.

    Is this a 4-stroke?
