My boat is already a pretty shallow running 18' center console flat bottom... It is custom made of heavy aluminum and has pods on the back.. would a jack plate benefit me any for running in shallower saltwater Bays?


The driving force and secret desire of every bass fisherman, is to one day be a crappie fisherman............Could it be that the good Lord just smilies and looks the other way when a fisherman tells a lie?

Just have to watch your water pickup. Get to high and you will lose water pump water.

That is where a PSI gauge comes in. I would nto run any boat without one.

Call Steve at Hydrodynamics. He builds, sells, and installs jackplates.
