Please Note: For Yamaha SHO Engines use the Moto Stop 2-Stroke Model
Crafted from high-grade 6061 aluminum, the Moto-Stop Transom Saver is the last motor-toter that you’ll ever need to purchase. No bolts and no drilling are required to use the heavy duty Moto-Stop Transom Saver. Simply lift your motor up, place the Transom Saver onto your trim rods, then lower the motor and attach the rod clips– that’s it.
By stabilizing your motor during transportation you can help support the weight of the engine and alleviate the stress placed on your transom. To further prevent engine movement during transportation, the Moto-Stop Transom Saver also includes a pair of rod clips that easily fit over your steering cylinder rod. The Moto-Stop Transom Saver and rod clips neatly store in the heavy-duty canvas bag that’s also included. Made from shock-absorbent urethane, the bushings and pads on the Moto-Stop Transom Saver reduce the effects of road shock and won’t damage your engine. The ultimate in engine support, the Moto-Stop Transom Saver is used and trusted by a host of professional anglers, including Ish Monroe, Skeet Reese, and Mike Iaconelli.

Comments: This is a well built, expensive Transom saver that works easily. It slides on without having to be held which is a great safety feature. It, however, has to be used the the blocks(provided) or your engine will turn. Is it better than the new Motormate? I am not sure.
