Anyone make a jack plate?

Just wondering if anyone has put together an outboard jack plate, it's one of my "to do" jobs this winter and I don't want to reinvent the wheel.
Cheers joe

Papa; can you describe what you're trying to accomplish?

A jackplate will set the motor back a bit, but allow you to set motor height on the fly (which is why they're pricey.) If you're just looking for setback (non-adjustable height), you can do with an extended bracket (or pod, or whatever you want to call it.)

I am sure I've seen manual jack plates on eBay for around 250 didn't take more note than that though.

Ah now, I've made one to carry my diesel auxiliary outboard motor. It has a central screw to lower and lift the motor. The motor weighs about 90kg.

That sounds like the thing... I need to lift the engine height and it would be nice to have the ability to adjust
