Post Mud Motor stands
What are you guys building for Mud Motor stands? I will be swapping my Mud Motor in the summer for a 25hp outboard (lake restrictions) and would like to know what you guys use to store them when not being used. Building one of out wood doesn't exactly put my mind at ease.

Thanks!

WestEndAngler, you haven't had any issues with yours? Mud motors are just significantly heavier and the weight isn't distributed the same. I want to be able to store it and not have any worries about it collapsing. Appreciate your feedback!

Mine is almost exactly the same and has zero issues. I think about the only difference with mine is it might be about 6 inches wider.

Easiest stand I’ve built, was for transporting a motor.
Just built it on a pallet for the motor to fit in the back of my truck.
I added 4 wheels to it for my father in law, and he uses the shit out of it in his shop.
Works just fine
