I own a 16 foot Scout with a 50 hp 4-stroke Mariner motor with power tilt and trim. I rarely trailer it but this year, I think I will do a lot more trailering.
I've never had a transom saver. While researching transom savers, I hear mention of a tilt lock or trailering bracket. I've never noticed one on my motor. Am I overlooking it? Anyone have a photo of one?
Also, I read about squeezing a piece of wood in the tilt mechanism but when I tried this, the wood simply dropped out. The motor is not locked down so if I go over a bump, the motor rises and drops the wood. Am I doing something wrong?
Here's a photo of my motor:
