On the rare occasion that I have had to transport it any distance by hand, I have found that you can “sling” it with a pair of cargo straps to a stout oar and then two guys can move it about fairly easy if you go slow. Put the oar on your shoulders and the guy in the back can stabilize the motor by holding onto the lower unit so it doesn’t swing around as much when you walk. Not exactly an walk in the park, but it is doable…
