I saw this thread this morning and it motivated me to make a motor stand. I had a bunch of 2x6 hanging around. Well, it took 3 hours..Heres some pictures. I plan on putting my 1965 40hp big twin on it. Thanks for the detailed plans!
Will this stand support a 115 Mercury OK?
as you can see i also built a stand for my "new" outboard.
it is a 1999 johnson 40hp, weighing 81kg. Thanks to dh4winn79's post, it was like assembling a kit from ikea. I just had to cut all the pieces and assembled them. It worked perfectly.
