If you are that worried about it then the next time you see a dude from Texas driving down the road with a dinghy and an outboard motor hanging off the back of his hitch try not to follow that closely. Anyway I would love to chat some more but its 85F in Houston today and I just got off work early so Its time to hit the water. Happy Boating and Adios Amigos!
Its usually known as constructive feedback, from people concerned for the safety of other motorists, and trying to stop a lot of damage to your outboard!
Personally I think your rack will probably survive assuming you are driving sensibly and the roads are in reasonable condition; and your welding skills are good enough. I think its much more likely the engine works loose and just falls off.

You think that is over 150kg?
