Transporting an outboard on its side?
Hi, decided to take the plunge and picked up a sib with a yamaha outboard.
For the time being im going to have to pick it up in the boot of a volvo until i get round to fitting a towbar. (part of the reason i went with a sib not a rib).
In the manual for the engine i cant see it mention transporting it horizontally, it only says it can be transported in its running position.
On another yamaha 50hp model it does have info on storing it sideways, explaning the coolant must be drained first.
So is it safe to transport an outboard on its side (yamaha 50x) or should i avoid doing it? I would of thought they get so much punishment at sea it wouldnt of been a probelm but im sure i will be told different!
