Storing Portable Yamaha Outboard

The manual and Yamaha's web site is not helpful. Where can I get complete information on storing portable outboard motors?

After winterizing the outboard, you can either store it on one side... if you lay it down on one side, it will be alright, but the manual should say which of the two sides is ok. One side will let the oil leak.

The other option is storing the engine on a sawhorse.

You know what the first rule of sailing is? ...Love. You can learn all the math in the 'verse, but you take
a boat to the sea you don't love, she'll shake you off just as sure as the turning of the worlds. Love keeps
her going when she oughta fall down, tells you she's hurting 'fore she keens. Makes her a home.

Having some experiance with having to get outboards to run in the spring, if you have room a motor stand of some sort is the best way to store your motor. A lot less hassles and longer engine life and you don't trip over it in the dark.
