About Outboard Motor Stand
You spent a lot of money on your new boat, and you are proud of the care you take of every component. An outboard motor stand is the next key accessory for making sure your boat has a long productive life while retaining as much value as possible. Make sure you choose the right stand for your outboard. The manufacturer clearly defines the weight capacity of the stand, and the dry weight of your boat's motor is available from the outboard manufacturer. Some stands only hold your Yamaha outboard motor off the ground when not installed in the boat. This makes it easier to service the engine, and it is a great way to protect it from the elements during winter storage. Other stands also work as dollies with wheels, which are easy to tilt and push when moving a heavy Mercury or Evinrude outboard motor between boats or to the shop for servicing. An outboard motor stand protects both the propeller shaft and your back during cleaning and winterizing. You can find a large inventory of boating accessories on eBay, including outboard stands, parts, and covers.
