Jack plate on SeaPro or not? #10451790 12/04/14 03:36 AM

I've got a '98 SeaPro with a 115 Yamaha. I was going to put a TH Marine Z Lock manual jack plate on it but the guys at the shop told me it probably wasn't worth it to put a manual jack plate on. They said no performance gains and probably won't be able to go any shallower in this boat.

How hard is it to move that plate up and down while on the water?
Is there a different manual jack plate that is a better option?
Is there any benefit in performance with the jack plate?
Will it make a difference how shallow I can go?
Are there any other considerations? I know that steering and hydraulic lines need to reach.

A manual plate would be a waste of money. A hydraulic would serve you well for getting into and out of places. No more than 6" of setback.
