Water movement is made easy by the presence of watercrafts. Outboard engines are machines that help in the proper movement so the water vessels like the ships. Outboard motors are not only useful in the propulsion of the machine but also used as the steering device for the watercraft. It combines the boat engine the gearing system and the propeller for the watercraft. A skeg can be used in the place of the motor in case the motor is not properly function. Good thing with the outboard motor is that it is portable and can be used for more than one boat. When The boat is not being used the engine can be withdrawn and stored in a safe place. Another Advantage is that the motor can tilt and make it easy for the navigator to evade rocks and rough ground in the water. It is a characteristic that also assists in the relocation of a boat using a trailer.
Many kinds of engines have been made since the discovery of the machine. The type of engine fitted to the board depend on the weight of the boat and also the kind of work it does. There are big engines made for big boats especially the ones over 18 feet long. However there are small engines for small boats and are fitted by the use of clumps to the boat . When one has enough fuel the boats can go for long distances with the outboard motors. Weight carried by boat and the weight of the boat re the determining factors of the kind of motor to be fixed in a boat.
Outboard engines are a product of young engineers in the universities. It was a discovery that propelled them to greater heights it readily waited in the markets of the water engines. From the discovery of the first engine became successful, several other engines have been created from the idea. Different models of the engines have been created for purposes of improvement. Watercrafts can now enjoy different machines that have been made as engines to suit them.
Two strokes engines have since been created from the initial for strokes engines. People like the two-stroke engines because they are simplified and also very efficient in both doing their work and saving of the fuel. However they are being discouraged by many authorities as they are unfriendly to the environment due to the amount of pollution they cause to the environment
The person who invented the engine is regarded by many as the designer of the earliest workable and sealable outboards. Sales for the machine was very high at the time when it was manufactured. It became a rescue to many people who have always wanted to have simpler engines for their watercrafts. They are very efficient in saving the amount of fuel used in its operation.
