Question for the salt-water guys and Pat will undoubtedly chime in here. I have a Seaark 1872 MV CC with a Hydro-Dynamics jack plate on it. I initially put the jack play on to have a place to mount a SI transducer with no interference to the sonar beam.
That was the only purpose, but recently myself and a couple of buddies were in Trinity Bay fishing for Spec and Reds, and I find my self being slowly addicted. We got caught up in the heat of the fishing and on the way back to the ramp, got caught by a low tide, scraped a high spot and roughed up the edges of my prop a little. Nothing serious and it cleaned up with a file, but it got me to thinking.
It would be nice to get into the flats as well as dealing with low tides without having to break out the wrenches to raise and lower the jack plate.
The hull on my boat is a MV, not a tunnel, so I'm wondering if I would gain anything by making the switch.
How about some opinions from you guys who have ben at this for while.
