    Davis Instruments Motor Caddy Eases Outboard Motor Transport

    Moving or transporting an outboard motor presents difficulties. Even small motors are bulky and awkward to carry, particularly when wet or oily. Davis Instruments offers the Motor Caddy to make hoisting and carrying most 2 to 15 hp outboards quick, simple and safe.

    The Motor Caddy provides a self-centering handle that works equally well for lifting motors by hand or with a lanyard or hoist. Its improved design includes a longer harness strap to fit four-stroke models. A shortened security strap provides extra protection when transporting streamlined engine cases.

    A loop tensioner and adjustment buckle make the harness easy to customize to the shape and size of a variety of outboard motors. After adjusting the tension, the user simply snaps together the glass-filled nylon buckles to fasten the harness. Releasing the motor from the harness is equally simple.

    Marine-grade, UV-resistant materials and hardware ensure that the harness can withstand tough conditions, even in semi-permanent installations. The Motor Caddy retails for $29.99.
