we have a suzi 200 and just recently towed it to spain. I beleive the manual said you musnt rely on the hydraulics or the clip. We made a prop which supported the engine from the lower gearbox thingy to the trailer. This prevented any undo load onto the transom. This may have been recommended in the manual. cant rememember, just did it.

'Nashers Device' will be fabricated(With some ammendments) next week. after which I'll knock them out in stainless or MS tube for anyone that wants one.

For a small consideration of course.

Still not convinced about bracing to the trailer because of any movement between boat and trailer. Effectivley your attaching the boat to the trailer using the engine!!

of course, but on a journey like this, the boat also has straps connecting it to the trailer as well.

ok , just back from the pub. Not sure what this 'Nashers device' is from what i can get from this thread. Our device is a bit of 4x1 timber(cedar, what I happen to have around ) in this case. Worked on a 1000 mile journey. Cost, F all. Nuff said.
