Transom jack on a 2005 Zodiac pro 16 man

I have a 2005 Zodiac pro 16 man (20') and want to know how adding a 12" set back transom jack affect performance and how much will it stress my transom? I want it further back so I can have easier access to gear stored at the stern and clearance when I trim the outboard all the way up. Thanks guys.

There's a lot of factors left out.

The biggest is the weight of outboard... second to that is the horsepower rating.

The outboard is a 2005 mercury optimax saltwater edition 115hp. It weighs around 375. The transom jack is around 44lbs.

Instead of a jack, what about some sort of bracket that also provides flotation? This is on a 20' Zodiac SRMN.

That would be a great option as well... Did you have yours built or did your boat come with it?

Thats not mine, I saw the pic online. I have the same boat and would definitely buy one of those if I knew who made it. There are places that make custom floatation brackets and I think that would be better than a jack plate as you can design it to spread the load more evenly on the transom.
