This left the engines kinda balanced over the transom...
I am suprised that the 90's did not have the same trailering brackets that my 115 and then 150 had, These have been on Evinrudes for over a decade and I cant figure why none of the other manufacturers have fitted them..

The Honda on Pigs Ear is the same, the only bracket is the one I always thought was just for use for safety when working on the engine, and I agree it does not look upto the job for trailering.

This is what the Honda Manual says....

"The Motor should be trailered in the normal running position or by using a transom saver bar"
