    What is the easiest way to ship an outboard?  I have an 7.5 evinrude fleet twin and live in Michigan the person that wants it lives in Florida. What is the easiest way to ship the motor. Any ideas or suggestions would be appreciated.

    any friends going south ??

    check with  UPS-DHL  style shippers for the best rate ..motors are heavy it may be cost prohibitive with today’s  shipping costs  to ship a 60 year old motor

    Joining AOMCI has priviledges 🙂

    I’ve never done it but have often heard it suggested. Might need to be on a pallet.

    I’ve shipped 40hp motors via truck freight on a pallet, but smaller motors, like yours, can be crated and shipped UPS or FedEx. I’ve built my own crates for several smaller motors.

    Maybe post on this site a member in Florida may be up in Michigan and would transport it back to Florida for some gas money.
