HELP! -Trailering Outboard Motor Installed On Boat ? Motor Support Bar?
I just purchased a used 4 stroke long shaft Honda 15 hp for my 14 foot Lund Rebel. When I trailer the boat, the bottom of the motor (sked?) is only about 4 inches from the road (ground). I am worried that when pulling it over uneven highway it will contact the road and damage it. The following is an excerpt from the owners manual I downloaded from Honda Marine for my motor:
When trailering a boat with the outboard motor attached, leave the engine in the normal running position, if possible, and tighten the steering friction lever securely.
If there is insufficient road clearance in the normal running position, then tilt the outboard motor and use a motor support bar, or remove the outboard motor from the boat. Refer to the manufacturers instructions for using a motor support bar.
Has any heard of a motor support bar? I think I have seen them on some motors that have electric tilt. Sorry have only used electric on my boat?I am a total rookie when it comes to this...
