Transom Savers


I have a new Etec 150 HO with an Atlas 6" setback hydraulic jack plate, on a Triton 189 TRX. When trailering long distances, is the built in tilt locking bracket adequate, or would a motormate or some other type of transom saver be better? Thanks.

I assume that you have an Evinrude E-TEC G1  150 HP.  The factory installed trailering bracket is made just for that.

The factory recommends that a properly trained technician service your Johnson or Evinrude outboard motor. Should you elect to perform repairs yourself, use caution, common sense, and observe safety procedures in the vicinity of flammable liquids, around moving parts, near high-temperature components, and working with electrical or ignition systems.

The information offered here is only general in nature and should not be construed as complete factory approved procedures, techniques, or specifications. Always use the proper service manual for your motor, up-to-date service literature, the correct tools, and have an understanding of how to proceed with troubleshooting and repair methods. If you are unsure or uncomfortable with a procedure, a situation, or a technique, enlist the services of a factory trained technician.
