Physics will tell you your secure it from the motor to the trailer.  Like Wrench said, be sure to secure it the boat to the trailer.  Other opinions on this are based on a lack of facts or mis information. Also, always tighten and check motor to transom bolts regularly as they cause most problems.

Ironically all the old boats with failed transoms used to toter to trailer support. I’m a fan of the sticks over trim or if u have a mercury, the swivel bracket that uses trim holes. 

I have NEVER seen a motor bounce in my truck mirror like it does in rough water...

transoms are way better than they were years ago when motor toters to the trailer were a thing. 

Or, avoid low profile reels, fuel injection, radial tires and fluorocarbon line too 🙂

The new-style toters haven't been out that long so naturally all of the old boats with failed transoms used motor-to-trailer support.

I also use the snap-on stops for hydraulic steering that keep the motor from shaking side-to-side while trailering. May help, may not but certainly doesn't hurt.

How many times have you launched and forgot to pop those off? 😁

I forget the steering stops at launch a lot! But, easy to grab and recover. 

I made a few sets from pex.
