Adam Younger = 'Adam' on Boatmad will probably be able to help you out. He can supply 'Bobs Machine Shop' lifters.

I don't think he does.
Cookee recommends the stainless marine gorilla jackplates, and having visited stainless marine, I can vouch for the quality of their engineering.

My old hydrolift had a 10" bobs lifter, originally off Adams race cat on it, it was a good lifter and stood up to a lot of abuse very well. If I needed another lifter, I'd certainly consider Bobs ones again.

I have already replied to the direct email and phone call! It's for an Evinrude 70hp so a Stainless Marine Gorilla 3 is a bit over the top!
