    I've been tossing around the idea of building my own outboard motor stand. I want to keep a 9.9 Evinrude on it during the winters.

    Has anybody here ever built one or have any suggestions? I found a guy who built his own at this web site: http://mypeoplepc.com/members/djohns19/djohns19/

    It would be nice to build something that can fold up when I'm not using it.

    Thanks,

    Scott

    i bought a pair of sawhorse brackets at lowes for a couple bucks and made a narrow, high sawhorse. worked fine.

    that ones o.k.....
    i suggest you put wheels on it. couple lockable hinges on the bottom and some kinda quick release type thingys for the upper supports and it should fold.

    Try a folding saw hourse with a 2 x 4 for support. Make it narrow width, but wide at the legs to support the weight. I built one myself and it was easy. No real plans, just started building.
