Tim Hanowski's stands

There is nothing like having a good stand for your classic outboard motor.   I have tried several different stands for my motors and found that the best stands were made by a fellow named Tim Hanowski.  His stands are extremely well made of metal, have good quality wheels to make it easy to move around, come in a variety of sizes to fit the size of your motor, fold up flat when not in use, reasonably priced and, best of all, take up very little room so that you can put your motors side by side without using up your entire garage.

If you're interested in buying one contact Tim directly by email at: ttski@juno.com

1. Largest stand for the biggest motors you have.  This stand will hold just about any antique or modern outboard you have.  It's very strong, folds flat, and has sturdy wheels to allow you to move what would ordinarily be a very cumbersome motor.  Notice how easily it holds this heavy 1957 Evinrude Lark 35 HP motor.  This is my motor and I can push it around with ease and it takes up very little room compared to other stands.

2. Small motor stand for trolling motors and light weight motors.  A really great stand for smaller motors.  Even though small, I've put pretty heavy 7.5 HP motors on it with no problem and I know that other people have put larger motors than that on them.  Very compact.  Notice the two 10 HP Evinrude motors on their stands and how they easily fit into a room or garage.  If you look closely at the Evinrude motors you notice paint spray on each of them.  These motors had been used to hold the motors while they were being cosmetically restored.  Perfect work bench for it.

3. Device to make a single motor stand or a multiple motor stand! REALLY cool and unique device! This is really cool. You can take this device and make a single motor stand from wood you supply or take two or more of them and make a multiple motor stand! This is really cool and quite unique. Very strong too.

Mercury stands from the 1950s and 1960s

The Mercury dealer stands are probably the coolest looking original stands ever made.  They were made in the 1950s and into the 1960s.  The original stand has the old style "K" logo on it.  Later, they went to the more modern logo which, in my opinion, is not as nice.  These stands are VERY heavy and hard to move around unless you install wheels into the bottoms of the stands.  Holes are predrilled in these stands for the wheels that you can buy at a Home Depot type place.

Mercury "K" stand:  This is the early version of the stand, and the best looking one in my opinion.  It has the old style 1950s logo on it.  Notice the wheels on the bottom to help you move the motor around.  David Doyle bought one that was painted white. He painted it the correct black color and then added some artistic license to the logo!  This is what Mercury should have done!  I love it.  I would love to find one of these stands for myself someday.
David Doyle put his spare 1958 Mercury Mark 58 on the stand.  He's looking to restore it.
In June 2008, David did restore that Mark 58 and put it back on the stand.  Check out the last pictures.

Mercury stand. more modern version:  After the "K" stand Mercury made a more modern version with their new logo on it.  I have this version.  Notice the wheels on the bottom to help move it around.
