DIY Suzuki 2.5 Outboard Flush Stand

Just wanted to share a simple diy outboard flush stand specifically sized for my Suzuki DF2.5 outboard. I needed something compact that did not take up a lot of space and could be quickly assembled / disassembled and put away and this build has met all of my requirements. Hopefully this diy may aid others as it has for me whom are in search of the same requirements for their little Suzuki outboard.

PA14 Ama Mod Update : Maiden Voyage

I finally found the time to take out my Hobie PA14 on its first maiden voyage with the new ama upgrade and continue on with the new outboard motor break-in process. Everything went great and had an awesome day out on the water! I got to test out the pvc keel guard as well – thing is solid! Also found that is was a super simple process to put the landing gear down while out on the water with the engine raised prior to heading in to the boat ramp. In conclusion I found nothing to fix or anything that would need changing with this mod in its current configuration.

Finally a REAL nose keel guard!

As this was my first time trying to do this mod, no video was taken of the process but the end results were amazing to me so I wanted to share these results in the hopes it may inspire others to follow suite who are also looking for solutions to minimize damage to a known high wear area on most kayaks.

Shout out to “Sea Monster Fishing” whose instructional video of his skid plate made this possible! Go check out his video and make one for yourself. See link below:
