I performed my first outboard maintenance yesterday - onboard - using a Harbor Freight sawhorse. It fit right in the cockpit, and the outboard attached to it easily.
And I have to recommend the Topsider Oil Changer - it sucked the oil out completely, with no mess. I then removed the drain plug - nothing was left! (I did run a little fresh oil through, just to flush.) Also replaced the leg oil - emptied the old stuff into a plastic dish. Didn't have to transport the motor, or clog up dock traffic.
Maintenance card earned! Back to sailing!
