Re: Muscling the Motor onto the Outboard Bracket

I had the same difficulties getting the outboard onto the dinghy, so I bought a Garhauer outboard motor hoist. It would work great for your application.

Re: Muscling the Motor onto the Outboard Bracket

TQA, who cares how it looks if it's what allows the OP to get the engine on and off the boat comfortably, confidently, and without losing the engine? Now, as a practical matter, some of the engine hoists cost as much as the engine! But that's a separate issue...

Re: Muscling the Motor onto the Outboard Bracket

I use a rig on my boom , it works well. I have a motor bk. next to my gallow , so it's really easy to get the mtr. off the dink or off the mtr. stand . But you need a long boom . If you don't have that . You need a Davit. Garhuar has a really nice one . Don't lift that thing by hand !

I used to have a 25 hp Mercury Outboard (I recently downgraded to a 2.5 HP). I finally decided that if I didn't get some kind of hoist, me and or it, was going into the drink one day for sure, as I struggled to move it from dinghy to stern railing, or vice versa, with my wife saying "You're going to drop it. Watch out. You're going to drop it. Watch out." the entire time.

I finally picked up a St. Croix hoist and mounted it to the transom. What's cool about it is you can easily remove it and store it below when not in use. My back still thanks me for this.

On the northern Gulf of Mexico.
