Build outboard stand on trailer

I recently brought a longer inflatable boat (15.5ft) with aluminum floor, my motor is about 100 lb (20hp). I have a lot of concern about trailering the boat with outboard on the transom even with the transom saver since the inflatable tube will definitely made the engine bouncing and it would generate extra force to tear the join area between the transom and the tube.

Did some research and i saw people designed an outboard stand that can be attached on the trailer tongue area. See link below. The two U-bolts can hold the stand board pretty firm, and if i screw the outboard on the board, it should be stable, right?
Want to hear your advice.

You would need to ensure the noseweight of the trailer with the outboard in the area you're thinking stays within the car manufacturer's' recommended noseweight figures or it may cause steering and/or suspension problems.

Its ok to travel with the outboard on. Just use the Transom Saver and make sure the transom is supported by the trailer bunks. Travel with as much pressure as you use when running. Though I lower my pressure since I have a high mountain pass to cross when trailering.
I have a 60HP at 247lbs on a Zodiac Futura mk2.
Of course if your glue on your transom is showing signs of letting go, that's a problem that needs to be dealt with.
