A MOTOR HINGE


A MOTOR HINGE

By Fun Rurse

Outboard motors are a great blessing to the fisherman, but when one gets up into shallow water, especially if one wants to do any casting, the propeller frequently catches on the bottom. To overcome this I hinged the top four inches of the stern board of my row boat and hang the motor to this. Now when I get into shallow water I simply pull off the rudder handle and tip the motor forward so that the propeller is brought free from the water.

I use four stout hinges, the center pair eight inches apart, to allow of the motor being hung between them. At either end I also place an extra piece of steel to act as a brace, and take the weight off of the hinges.

This device also protects the rudder and propeller if they happen to strike something when running, as the motor will simply tip forward and allow the propeller to rise.
