I have my 25 on a short and tight wire attachement . My thinking is if the clamps do loosen up I will probably feel/see the motor moving on the transom so can easily stop and sort it without it going in the drink.

Mine literally can only move about 2cm upwards/ or to each side so even if the clamps are totally free it still wont jump off the boat or come into contact with anything it shouldn't propwise.

What the problem with bolting the engine. It is only 20 min work and then you dont have the worry of it turning into an anchor or a human blender.

had a 20 yam 2stroke clamped on my yam360 sib for best part of 10 years. it never moved even in worst conditions. i had a outboard lock fitted that covered the two clamp bolts and a short cable tieing outboard to transom just in case.

Exactly - if you are doing it once or twice a year 20 minutes is fine, but every couple of days would drive you mad.

Thanks for all the advice folks!
will definitely be tethering the outboard and tieing the clamp handles together.

cheers
