Hi. Am seriously considering adding a TH Marine hydraulic jackplate to my boat. The model would be the Micro-jacker rated to 115HP with a 4" setback. Adds 28lbs per the website. For fishing so much shallow water around here and constantly almost trimming the motor out of the water would be great to be able to just raise the whole motor up and have less in the water to drag. Could also help my overall top end speed but thats a bonus and not my first goal.

Has anyone done this to their Tracker before? Any issues? I can't find anything online about Trackers not being able to support using one.

Thanks for the help!

With a 4" setback you will probably be fine.
