People use the watercrafts for transportation in water. These are engines that are put in boats to ease in its movements. Outboard Motor has an exceptional function too of aiding the boats in taking the proper direction while in water. 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. Outboard motors are made in such a way that they are easily portable to one boat to another. When The boat is not being used the engine can be withdrawn and stored in a safe place.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. Because the motor is portable one can easily relocate it by the use of trailer from one place to another.
After first discovery of the machine others have been made as improvement. The kind of engine fixed in a boat depends on the size of the boat and the weight the boat is supposed to carry. Big outboard motors can be used for all the boats that are over 18 long as they produce enough power to propel them. Small boats that require small engines are fixed to them by the use of clumps together with their fuel tanks. Small engines are still able to propel the boats for long distance if one has enough fuel. Science behind the kind of engine to use is the kind of load to be carried by the boats.
Outboard engines are a product of young engineers in the universities. The idea was well taken by the market as it brought about diversity and broke monotony of the fixed engines. First Discovery opened up a good platform for discovery of more complex, but simple engines for the watercrafts. Improvement of the engines is practiced all over the engineering sector through the invention of the engine. Some Another simple to use machines have been developed to suit the wide variety of watercraft that have been made.
There are two-stroke outboard engines and four-stroke outboard 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. The engines are however not environmentally friendly due to the semi combustion of the fuel used.
People who designed the engine are greatly regarded in all the parts of the world for their good work. Good money was collected through the sale of the machines. It was a move that was greatly appreciated by people involved in watercrafts business. Outboard motors help in saving of the fuel.
