    Hello
    Does anyone know of a retailer that sells outdrive storage racks or if someone has made their own. I am looking to pull my outdrives next week and need something to put them on. Thank you.

    Don't make fun of my sketch. Make this out of 2x10's... The skeg fits between the center two boards... Wheels for height and to move around. Works great.

    Googling will easily return some options for you if you want to buy something. May even return some homemade solutions. I had a picture of something I made in a previous post - try using my name as a qualifier and searching for that. But the jist of it is... (4) pieces of 2"x8"x18" screwed together in an "H" pattern with two 2x's making the center of the H, about an 1" apart. Add wheels if you want.

    Edit... or just look at Blue's pic as he types faster than me!

    Yeah, I build one out of some scrap lumber, carpet and bought some casters from Lowes. It's a must have if you do any drive work. Just google outdrive stand.

    Same here. 2x3’s screwed together into a 3D rectangle shape and the drive is supported by 2 “runners” slid into the gap above the anti cavitation plate.

    Pictures to come.

    I made one last year out of 2x6s & 2x8s to hold a pair of BIII's and mounted it to a moving dolley. Pretty straightforward the only "extra" thing I did was bevel the tops to create somewhat of a cradle. Probably $35 in materials including the Harbor Freight dolley.
