For sibs (and smaller outboards not using bolts to hold engine on) uses a rope/wire strop between boat and engine. i've seen 3 fall off the back, usually in tight turns when the torque is at its peak.

Mine was spliced to the outboard (most have a lug for this on the bracket) and a carbine clip on the other end, which I clipped to the lifting pad eye on the inside of the transom.

much cheaper to do this than loose the engine

Don't leave the transom wheels down on your first outing, and think that 20hp should feel quicker that this and why am I getting wet.... maybe just me on this one....
I was wondering more about the previous one...

Do: Carry a VHF and know how to yell for help. Also useful when others yell for help.
