Default Outboard Motor Stand

I would like to get a set of outboard motor stands to store my 300x's on this winter.
Who makes them?
Am I better off biulding a pair myself? If so where can I get pictures or plans?

Thanks for the help.

Why?

Simply winterize and shrink wrap the whole rig. By the time you dismantle the steering, electric harnesses, trim hoses, trim indicators....etc..... you'll question your own sanity.

If you must do something...pull off the lower units and have some one service the seals (especially the shift shafts).

My sanity is always questionable
Im going to send my jack plates down to Diamond for some work. When I bought the boat the bolts that hold the two pieces of the plate together did not have nuts on the back of them so it got a little chewed up. I bought longer bolts with nuts on the back so the problem is fixed but now adjustments are a PITA.
I also need to make a bracket to pin the covers like the 2.5's. Ive resorted to ducktape to keep my cowlings on and it looks .....well....bad...Ill leave it at that.

Don't winterize -- Just move south.

I am sure the crack staff at TEAM AGL RACING can throw a couple of stands together in a few short hours.
