My Yamaha 115 manual said always use one. My shop said for longer distances it's a good idea. I believe the thought though is to spare the hydraulics the abuse rather than save the transom?

I got an hard rubber unit you place around the hydraulic cylinder and then lower engine until resting on it. http://www.m-ywedge.com/. Dubrus likely has the smarter cheaper version than I bought
