Transom Saver new thread.
 
I've read all the pros and cons on the discussion on the previous transom saver thread. I have an idea/question. Does anyone make a transom saver. that has some sort of shock absorber built in? Would this have benefits? Kind of like smooth moves seats to save your back why not a smooth move transom saver to save your engine and transom. Just wondering.

So allowing the lower unit to move up and down is to be considered a good thing? Not sure this would be beneficial, as the movement/flexing would seem to put pressure on the transom?

Cabela’s had one for about $60 before BPS bought them I couldn’t find online for a friend after. So he bought something different. I really like mine.

My thoughts also. More movement = more stress. Sure, it's probably a good thing in a shock load situation when you hit a pothole or big bump, but seems like that additional and FAR more frequent movement outside of those situations would be a bad thing.

The object of a transom saver is prevention of movement of the outboard relative to the transom. A shock absorber is better than nothing, but why compromise with a device that costs more and is inferior? Do it right in the first place. A saver eliminates stress on the outboard and the transom.

A shock absorber saver serves to appease someone who doesn’t understand, but wants to be politically correct and not offend. Those people need not worry about what others think. Instead, save your transom.
