Need help! Trying to figure out the best hydraulic jack plate for the money for my 17 1/2ā€™ triton aluminum rig with 115 hp Mercury EFI.

Thanks in advance!

Bob's Action Series Jac Plates... I've owned 4 so far and have not had 1 issue with any of them... Get the jack plate gauge and a water pressure gauge if you don't have one on the boat now. Keep an eye on the water pressure gauge when adjusting the height... Dan

Thank you! Do you know if there is a smaller version that might be a little cheaper? Being those are rated for a 300 hp and I only have a 115 hp I was assuming they probably made a smaller one for smaller aluminum boats with smaller engines?

I don't see a "lighter duty" hydraulic plate on Bob's website so I'd give them a call and see it they offer one... Sorry I can't be more helpful... Dan

better check first and make sure that tin can can handle a jackplate.

That is the one I was thinking about to put on mine.

Some of them are really heavy and don't want to add a ton of extra weight to the back of the boat. cheers

Eh...if Ott DeFoe can stack TWO of them on the back of a BassTracker, Iā€™d think a better built boat would be fine with one of them.
