Protect Your Outboard Motor with an Outboard Motor Stand


Visitors: 3,120

It's a good idea to protect your outboard motor with a durable and high quality outboard motor stand. This type of stand is used to mount and transport your outboard motor for your convenience. The stand is basically made up of wheels and a cart that can be installed before delivery, or you can install it yourself.

How useful is it?

Aside from easy transport of outboard motor, a stand is also used to help drain water from your boat by holding it upright. It also keeps water away from the engine and other mechanical parts of your boat.

Want to customize your boat? A stand is also great for propping it up so you can print your designs on the boat. Finally, an outdoor motor stand can also help you secure your boat and keep it protected against possible theft and break-ins. You don't want to leave your boat lying around in your shed, right? You can secure your boat to the stand and keep it locked away in a safe place.

How to buy

There are basically two kinds of stands for your outboard motor. These are:

Standard - The standard type can hold an outboard motor that weighs up to 485 pounds and up to 135 horsepower.

Large - This is made for large outboard motors and can hold for up to 900 pounds and up to 300 horsepower.

When looking to buy an outboard motor stand, make sure to choose a stand that has pneumatic air tires with stainless steel castors for easier and glide-like movement. These kinds of tires also make traveling across asphalt, grass, concrete, and even light gravel possible and easier. Finally choose a stand that comes with a mounting board that you can place your logo through silk screen.
