Back up lanyard for outboard on a sib.

Do any of you experienced sibbers recommend securing your outboard on your sib with a lanyard or by any other means, as just two clamps look a bit iffy to me, and if you do where do you secure it to.

I was thinking of lashing a rope round the engine and then securing it on the bench seat or onto the side grab ropes.

You should fit a padeye onto the inside of the transom, be sure to seal the drilled holes well to keep water out of the core.

Why do you have one of those on either the floor or dining table?

You sure it's not powdercoated alloy? It should be if it has the attachment loop on it. If not - eyebolt for you k.
