Protect your investment
An outboard motor is a major investment, so protecting it while towing to and from the water is a top priority. The MotorMate transom saver alternative keeps your Yamaha outboard motor from bouncing and jostling that may inflict collateral damage on the engine’s steering cables, hydraulic lines, housing and finish. Protect your investment in an outboard motor while towing a boat on the highway and off-road with MotorMate!
Check Your Motor Measurements
To ensure the MotorMate you order fits your Mercury motor, it is necessary to confirm measurements. The spacing of the contact points on the outboard motor and the edges of the stern brackets should match A and B in the chart to the right.
The motor yoke spacing is the Center-to-Center distance between the motor contact points that secure the MotorMate to the motor drive shaft housing. (“A” in chart)
The transom mount spacing is measured between the outside edges of the stern brackets. (“B” in chart)
For more measuring information, see our Select Your MotorMate page.
