Advice 1: How to transport outboard motor

Boat motor is complex and expensive mechanism that requires careful handling. This applies not only to its operation but also other aspects, including transportation, when the motor is unable to serve as engine. Transport land transport has several features that you should consider.

Transportation in vertical position.The right for carriage motorand (as for storage) is the vertical position, similar to that in which it is operated by boat. In the case of carriage in a vertical position to make sure that the clearance between the bottom of the motorand was expensive enough, or in the process of transporting the motor may be damaged. If the clearance is insufficient, can be transported in a reclined position, for example with the transom timber. Should not be chock-full to fill the fuel tank, as when heated, gasoline expands in volume. This can lead to the injection pressure inside the fuel tank and consequently to fuel leakage and cause a fire hazard.
2
Transportation in horizontal position two-stroke motorperevozka two-stroke motorin a horizontal position, as a rule, is not critical, however it is necessary to consider some nuances. In the first place it is impossible to prevent leakage of gasoline from the carburetor. Reducer ("leg") must be lower than the engine. To prevent damage it is necessary to securely fasten the motor and put it under him dense material.
3
Transportation in horizontal four-stroke motorchetyrehkantnyj motor can be transported only on the right side, otherwise possible leakage of oil from the crankcase and getting it into the cylinder head that may cause damage to the engine. You also need to pay due attention to its fastening and soft lining. As in the case of two-stroke motorOhm, four-stroke reducer should not be above the engine.
Note
In the horizontal position, the motor can only be for transportation, storage necessarily in a vertical position.

When transporting the boat on a trailer should not use the retaining lever for the tilt motor, because the shaking may jump off of the motor with the backup and blockage. If the motor cannot be put on the trailer in a horizontal position, it is better to use additional retaining device to secure the motor in a vertical position.

Advice 2: How to fix the motor on the boat

The most important factors influencing the efficiency of a boat motor are the angle of the engine and the position of its anti-cavitation agent relative to the bottom plate. How to fix the motor on the boat?

1
Before installing the outboard motor, it must be delivered to the installation site. In order to avoid problems during transportation, you must follow some rules.
2
Methods of transportation of the outboard motor can vary depending on its type. Carefully read the instructions manual for your motor. Inspect it, paying special attention to signs and warning decals. As a rule, they indicated the position during transportation. Drain the fuel from the tank and deliver the motor to the mounting location.
3
Determine the required magnitude of the displacement of the motor to the transom. In theory, the outboard motor should be shifted by 5 cm from the center of the transom to the starboard side of the boat. This offset is necessary in order to offset the torque arising from the operation of the screw. In practice, however, when you install the motor you must consider the profile of your boat. The more the profile of a "deep V" , the greater the offset required.
4
Determine the mounting height of the motor. You should know that the anti-cavitation agent plate of the motor should be set at 3-5 cm below the bottom. This arrangement provides optimal conditions for the operation of the boat motor.
5
Adjust the angle of the engine. The trim can be adjusted by changing the position of the pin in the clamp hinge of the engine. To select the tilt angle should be calculated from the desired speed, weather conditions, and the degree of loading your boat. You should know that too much trim reduces the handling of the boat and makes it less stable.
Note
When a large positive trim to the bow of the boat "lifted", which may lead to its overturning.

At a negative angle of inclination of the boat "depends on" nose to the surface of the water. This leads to a reduction of speed.

Advice 3: How to choose a motor for inflatable boats

After you have acquired an inflatable boat and thinking about choosing a motor. How to determine which boat motor do you need? Make the right choice will help you the following recommendations.
How to choose a motor for inflatable boats
Instruction
1
Since the choice of motor for inflatable boats play an important role in weight, it makes sense to look at 2-stroke engines - they are a little easier 4-stroke. Besides, if something happens the engine failure it can be repaired by local craftsmen, and not to carry in a specialized workshop. Another advantage of 2-stroke outboard motors - they are easy to transport.
2
The choice of power outboard engine is a very demanding task because the decisions depend on the efficiency and safety of operation. When choosing the engine power for inflatable boats you should consider the length. For example, a motor with a capacity of 15L/s suitable for boats with a length of 3.4 to 3.6 m, 18 l/s for boat length 3.5-3.8 m, Respectively, if the boat is shorter than 3.4 m, the motor to it is better to choose a weaker than 15 l/s.
3
You can calculate the power of the motor for the boat. 1 l/s can pull on plane 30 kg. Hence, we need to estimate the amount of mass of the boat, Luggage, passengers, and then divide the resulting sum by 30. The result is required to release the planing power of the motor.
4
When choosing the power of the engine should decide how many people will be in this boat. If you fish alone, may be enough and a small motor, but if you are fishing for the company went the other, the motor will not be able to bring on plane the boat. Another important reason to take into account the number of people is the weight of the outboard motor. More powerful than he is, the harder it is. Accordingly, to carry it from one machine to the boat and back, as well as independently to install a heavy motor on the transom would be problematic.
5
You should not take the maximum power for the boat, which is specified by the manufacturer: manufacturers sometimes overstate this figure, therefore, to exploit an inflatable boat with this outboard motor is dangerous. In addition, during the operation of too powerful engine there is a risk of damage to the transom, which will have to repair the boat.
6
Choosing a manufacturer of engines for boats, be aware that imported all the parameters are significantly higher than domestic. All imported motors are about equally good, so it shouldn't reflect on the choice of the brand. Although American and Japanese engines in their characteristics a little better than the European, it is not a fundamental difference.
