Hello from Bob's Machine Shop. We are the company that produced the jack plate on Robbie Diesels boat (post 9).
I just wanted to update you guys on some of our new jack plates, and explain some of the features/benefits of our jack plates.
We now have 3 lines of jack plates, Mini (1 - 50HP), Standard (50 - 300HP), and Extreme (350+HP including V8s)
We are currently developing a new 14 inch setback standard jack plate.
Unlike other brands of jack plates, we do not put the hydraulic pump inside the structure of the jack plate, but have it remotely installed inside the boat. By keeping the pump out of the elements it gives a long, trouble free life. Also since the pump is not as size restricted it is much stronger, and gives a faster lift time than other brands.
We give a lifetime warranty on the structure of the jack plates, and a 3 year warranty on the hydraulic pump.
Also in the April 2009 issue of TrailerBoats magazine, they did a test on 3 different style boats to see gains of our jack plates. If interested in having me send a digital copy of it, please email me at email@example.com
