Engine bracket (for home)

In trying to tidy up at home, I'm thinking of putting my Yamaha 20hp on a bracket on the wall rather than lying on the floor on a piece of chipboard.

I've seen some outboard brackets that are meant for mounting on boats that are the type of design I am after. like this http://www.whitstablemarine.co.uk/sh...NumberID=88428

None of them seem to have a high enough weight rating for my 50kg engine - any ideas anyone?

Cheers
Al

Surely a couple of large (ish) bits of timber nailed or screwed together would work - can the engine support some of its own weight on the leg ? or is that going to damage it in some way (I cant imagine how & I hope not as all my small outboards up to 10 hp have lived all thier lives like that )

outboard bracket

I was hoping for something prefabricated - as I need to send it down to the father in law to put up on the wall!

why not get one like that, and mount it at a height where the skeg is touching the floor taking the weight, but you can bolt it to the bracket to keep it in position?
