Transport of Mariner 6hp

I drive Landrover Discovery with Full Roofrack, rear ladder. My OB is a 6hp Mariner. To prevent oil drainage this needs to be transported upright or tiller side down. I have the following transport options
1) rear load area - but this usually full of other stuff
2) on roofrack on side
3) upright clamped to board on rear ladder (with prop cover)

The advantage of outside is lack of fumes from fuel. Outside could be less secure - but the clamped option would lend itself to standard security.

Thoughts please

I transport my Suzuki 6hp stood up behind the passenger seat in the rear passenger footwell (In a normal estate car). I wrap it in an inward facing deep pile carpet and stand it on a piece of plywood to spread the load a bit, and then wedge it in tightly with all manner of other 'stuff' around it. It never moves and I've never had any issues with damage, fumes or anything else transporting it from Peterborough to Cornwall & back a couple of times ( it is in 'as new' condition tho with no leaks etc).

Option 3 would work for me

I have seen an outboard clamped to the tailgate of a series 3 with the tilt open at the back facing outwards, it won’t move much

Yep my old Series III lightweight was ideal for that sort of thing
