It would be nice to see some pics from those members that use blocks of wood to support there engines e.g. how the wood has been shaped so that it doesn't slide down while lowering the engine on to it.

Just a Piece of 4X4 With it long enough to Hold while the Ram Comes down Mate (Wide Profile faceing out),Presumeing you have Trim switch on the engine..(I know the E-tecs do..)Its easy to put the Wood where it needs to go and operate the Trim down onto it..
Make sure to put it Low down where the Engine sits into the Bracket/Crossbar,you'll find theTop engine Bracket Bites into the Soft wood..That way, all..or Most of the Engine weight bears Down onto it and it aint goin Nowhere!! Simples..
You can then, (if you wish) Strap it in place to stop any Latteral Movement.

This is how I do it with a 90hp Honda (not on a rib). On my rib I have a transom saver that goes from the the trailer to the motor.

The problem with mine is that when I lower the leg onto the wood it will not bite but just slides down with the leg due to it being square. If you imagine a block of wood in between it can't grip.

Is that because it's not necessary?

According to the Suzuki handbook, too. But if you talk to them ... I think it's called arse covering

If something went wrong and you didn't trailer it like they recommend would it void the warranty nice get out clause
