Custom Outboard Stand/Flush

I knew that we'd be taking the boat out on Sunday so last Friday evening I very quickly built my own Outboard Stand for use as a storage and flushing stand. It only took me 3 hours and was very easy to put together.

For now I have used a fish-tank as it was the only container that I could find with sufficient height, but I hope to replace it with a plastic - the glass is nice however to see exactly whats going on down there!

I thought that I would share pics incase anyone else would like a reference on how to build a structurally sound stand!

Good job with the stand. Does the job.

Where are the fish - in the bath!

A word of warning with the glass. I can see the tank exploding (toughened glass) like a scene from Mission Impossible. The prop just needs to clip it and game over! Get yourself a cheap plastic bin. Even when you start the engine, as it's pull-start, there's a distinct possibility this is going to end in tears if the prop or cavitation plate makes contact!

Absolutely, it was only so that I could flush the engine yesterday, I completely agree and did say at the top of my post that I'd be replacing it with plastic or steel
