Transporting an Etec

Looking for anybody who can give me some advice on how to transport an Evinrude Etec 65hp in the back of a truck. I have searched the forum and unlike some of the engines I have read about, there is no info on the engine or in the operating handbook, regarding on what side it should be carried or what side it can be payed over on. The only thing I have is a picture (see below). I assume this is the best way? Thanks

Looks the best way it is now plenty of blankets round it strapped down to stop it moving.

Ideally if you can get hold of a pallet like the one shown then great... If not then as it is not a four stroke with an oil filled sump so there is not an issue with it being laid on either side as long as its well supported. Does it have an integral oil tank, I cant remember...? worth draining this if it does.
