Moving that heavy 20 hip 4 stroke

Now I have my 20 hp 4 stroke I need a good way to transport it if not on the trailer

My and her indoors can get it out of the Discovery and onto the boat but I need a barrow to wheel it from car to launch site

I was thinking of a foldable truck like this it will take 75kg

If I lay it on a couple of old pillows it should lay flat on the tiller side

I've just used a standard folding outboard trolley for the past ten years... this type of thing.

Rarely used at a launch site though as we set the sib up next to the car and back it up to the tailgate so the lift is only a couple of yards. When it's busy or tight for space we set up where we can and then wheel the sib to the car just long enough to pop the OB on.

The sib effectively is our OB trolley.

I've just ordered a Motor Toter trolley from BHG Marine, very strong and has wheels on the handle end for easy loading into the back of my pick-up.It's designed so that when in the car/truck bed, the transom angle keeps the outboard at a safe angle for transporting. Mine arrives tomorrow!
