Couldn't agree more but sometimes companies will buy stuff in and then have it sitting around for ages - the price they paid could be very different after currency fluctuations - having said that it would have to be VERY old stock - the $ has been weak for ages now!!!!

Why not go for a manual jack plate? Or I have seen a fixed one which is used to gain a set back.

Tue the point of a hydraulik jack plate is that you can get it up and down during motoring. If you get a manual one you can set it up before you go and that is it you are stuck with your settings irrespective of conditions. Do you see the point now?

Yes.

But as he has said the main reason for fitting one is to get a 10" setback. A manual one saves all the agro and cost of a hydraulic jackplate and having to add low pick ups tfor the engine. And as Cookie said they are not really needed on leisure boats. Do you see my point now

HUH

So money is no object. But that still leaves you with a bit of boat that can go up and down to real gain other than maybe blowing up your engine because the pick ups are full of mud or not alowing sufficeint cooling (and thats really a plus point).

But money is no object so you canalways buy a couple of spare engines for when one blows up. See my point
