If you’ve ever followed someone pulling a boat rigged with an outboard engine, chances are you’ve noticed that even the best highways can doll out their share of punishment. Road cracks, potholes, and a host of miscellaneous debris can translate into a lot of unwelcome jostling. As you can imagine, each time the outboard gets tossed around, stress is added to the transom area of the boat, the trailer, and even the engine itself.
So, what can be done to help alleviate the added stress that this type of unnatural jarring causes? We recommend that you consider the added support of a ‘transom saver.’ These units (especially when used in conjunction with boat buckles) help support the engine, reducing stress levels and ultimately saving unnecessary wear and tear on the boat, motor, and trailer.
