i have a transom mounted bracket that will pivot up so the outboard is out of the water when not in use,i lock the outboard down so it doesn't turn easily and use the main rudder,i like the reassurence of having it as a backup,i also keep about 5 gal. of gas for it.btw a six hp isn't going to do much for a boat your size especially in a strong current
