like a transom saver? I would think they are pretty universal? I found one at lake benbrook a few months ago, if youre anywhere near fort worth you can have it

I believe that a transom saver and motor holder are different. A transom saver attaches to the trailer and a motor holder usually fits over the trim rods. I am interested in a motor holder rather than a transom saver.

I use a Motormate on my motor and have been very happy with it.

Question... do these only work if you have hydraulic steering or will they work on any set-up? I have a 92 Mariner still using cable steering.

BPS has them, as does West Marine and a few others. I prefer them over transom savers.

Motor mate is the way to go and you can use it on either type steering.

I saw a video on another forum that a guy mounted a camera focused on his motor and transom while he was towing down the road. He had a motor holder and the video showed a lot of movement and flexing. It convinced him to do away with the motor holder and use the transom saver. It convinced me too.
