Re: 8 HP OUTBOARD ENGINE

Yes, the problem is that you cannot lower the motor when you are in the dinghy.
From the main boat, I lift mine off the rail, then swing it out about the distance needed to meet the dinghy transom properly (approx 1 meter)and tie the mizzen boom in that position with an elastic bungy cord.
Then I lower the motor so the bottom of the engine housing is just out of the water (this does not work if the boat is rolling very much!).
Finally, I get in the dinghy, move it in place under the motor and pick up the motor the few centimeters needed to get the bracket over the transom. Voila!
