Few weeks ago we bought a dinghy and an outboard to explore the marina. Now the question is where do we store our outboard?
Our outboard engine, a honda 2hp is pretty small and lights, so I thought we could save with the inexpensive rail mount motor bracket from seadog line bought for less of $20 on ebay.

Better bracket from Simple System Marine
As you saw it, the sea dog looks very unreliable. So I decided to order the “better bracket” from Simple System Marine.
The Simple System Marine product is 10 times more expensive, but you can see where went the cost, it seems overkill for an outboard we only paid $300. But at least I feel confortable to leave the outboard on the rail and I feel safe about it.
