Tilt stopper.

I've got a new Tohatsu 3.5 four stroke which I'm using as an auxiliary and the tilt stopper knob looks like its made of alloy not steel which doesn't look strong enough for all the bouncing about its going to take. Has anyone had a problem with this ? I would have thought a stainless steel stopper would be more adequate.

Cheers,

kerny.

Mmm Mild steel, Salt water = problems too, I guess its a compromise, SS would be better.
