I have been out of boating for about 7 years now after my wife and I opened our business, prior to this abstinence I have owned a dozen or so boats since the late 70's. I was surprised and for the most part pleased with how much boats and motors had evolved in 7 - 8 years. I have recently purchased a new SD 187 with a Yamaha 150 OB, most of my boating will be on a couple of north GA lakes that I have enjoyed for years. But we recently purchased a small home on the GA coastal river on Tybee Island, I purchased an outboard because I intend to trailer this boat down to Tybee several time per year. this is approximately a 300 mile trip one way down mostly interstates. In my past I used a motor support bracket on long trips and traveled with the motor partially raised. This new Yamaha has a flip down bracket the allows the motor to rest on the mount frame while up, the dealer staff who seem very nice and pleasant, don't sen to all agree on the best method for to trailer this boat and motor.. I would like to hear from Hurricane and their customers about how they would handle this transporting dilemma?
I'm pleased to be a new Hurricane owner and am looking forward many years of enjoying it on the water, any advise or suggestions you guys cab offer would be greatly appreciated.
