Just purchased a Nantucket 190 with a 150 Optimax.
I will be trailering it occasionally to Lake Superior 4-5 hours away.
Any recommendations on whether its advantageous to purchase a trailer Bar/ Bracket to support the motor when kicked away from the transom.

You'll probably find the answer to that in the Mercury Owner's Manual (yes).

I would definitly use a trailer bar to support the motor when trailering long distances. Less stress on the transom and less stress on the motor trim components.

I was able to contact some customer service reps @ Mercury Marine & Boston Whaler. The recommendations were pretty much what I've heard in this forum, that the support bracket for the motor is probably overkill & not necessary for shorter trips of a few hours, & around town. Longer distances, & especially in areas prone to rough roads & potholes that we see here in Minnesota, would make it beneficial to have the extra support in place. Thanks for your replys.
