Lifting your 20 hp

Many people on here seem to have 20 hp 4 strokes on their Sibs 54KG ish. I was wondering how you move this monster outboard from car to Sib etc and down to your launch point without getting a knackered back or a rupture to your wedding Tackle. I assume your are not trailing the sibs all the time. If your are I understand fully

Brute force is normally the way, I park right on the slipway so everything is not far to muscle. Iíve got a merc 15 super tuned to 18 so at 41 kilos and just 2 shy of 20 itís perfect for my futura. 2 strokes are much lighter but getting hold of good ones are rare.

BP having hurt my back moving farm eqpt 20yrs ago I have to be careful I don't put myself out of action during a boating day out or holiday. As I hit my 60s I had to take more care and while I used all the crafty methods boot-trolley-boat etc it was those short in between bits you mention above that caused me to downgrade recently from an... albeit light for its size... 44kg bulky 20hp to the current neat 9.9 Mariner. In the future we may need to go for a Tohatsu 9.8 2-stroke... or a trailed boat which first needs at home daughter to leave and free up garage/drive space.

Well after some deliberation I'm waiting on the new Tohatsu 2018 20hp to arrive in UK - at 43kg I hope its worth the extra dosh to save the weight but have the power/

I have a wheeled stand so will use that to shift it to the boat..

no you dont you need to look at gurnards set up he floats his boat under the engine on and off in the car he rests one end on the boot floor of his 4x4 lifts the bottom and pushes in job done, if you dont want to lift the engine its a trailer no getting round it.

Interesting you can rely on The Gurnard to work a clever way. Are their any threads on what Donny does.

Just finishing watching no 8 of your trip round Skye looks lovely. The whole point of me buying the T38IE is to do things like you chaps are doing but taking our caravan so want to avoid trailer as cant tow 2 things at once. I already have 2 other ribs on trailers.

The midges don't seem like much fun though

Around £2400 - same as the Mariner (which is quotes at 45kg). Due to arrive at end of month. Mine is around 30kg at present which is fine to shift around, I tried some 50kg ones but just to heavy so hoping 43 is ok!
