Trailering Advice.

Hi,
i got fed up with inflating and deflating the SIB so got a trailer... my question is can i trailer a SIB with the engine attached? or would it rip the transom off?

thanks

peter

Why not fabricate a bracket and rod to the trailer to support the outboard

Used to trail a 25 on the back of my 3.8. Had a block to ensure the engine stayed up during transport. There is quite a long thread on here about engine up or down on sibs for transport.

I never had any issues.

If you could place at back trailer a wooden slat running tube to tube width for engine to rest there will be opt. Will need to trailer that combo with tubes well inflated though for transom/engine rigidity. Engine must be locked down with sufficient leg height with respect to floor when trailering.

Happy Boating

Think about it, what difference is an engine on a boat on a trailer, to a boat in the water? Engines do not float.
