You might buy outboard motor cart while others prefer to build outboard motor stands of their own.

Here is an 15 HP Folding Outboard Motor Cart & Engine Stand that is designed to easily move and perform maintenance on 15 HP outboard motors weighing up to 85 lbs. This outboard motor cart also folds up for easy storage of the stand when it is not in use.
This outboard motor cart has large 7 inch rubber dolly wheels to allow moving the motor around in the shop. It also has ergonomic soft-grip handles and a heavy duty 1″ tube steel frame with a black powder-coat finish.
