Outboard Stand

After doing some research online and seeing some wierd and wonderful outboard stands, I decided to get one built to store my little outboard. I got in touch with a friend of mine that I row with who is a retired engineer, and asked him to see what he could do. He has already done one of these before for the rowing club which holds 3 or four outboards, so it wasn't a first for him either.

All in all I would say it looks damn good, and only put me 30 out of pocket as he had some left over materials from building the last one . Just needs to be bolted into the garage now

(ps, the reason i got room for two is because it gives me a good excuse to buy another one)

It's a tad dark in the garage so I thought it could be modelled in there first. Conservetories also make perfect places for servicing outboards too
