Wanting to put a jackplate on my dargel 186 skout, 115 etec. I've talked to a few service guys and one of them mentioned I should go with a elec jackplate with a 10 inch setback. Does anyone have this kind of jackplate on your boat, if you do are they just as good as hydraulic one. Thanks for your help..

Do any of these techs have any experience with a tunnel flats hull? That's TERRIBLE advice. It's the exact opposite of a bass hull, you want the minimum amount of setback coming out of a tunnel, you don't need or want lift, because it is all about the holeshot and shallow water performance.

I personally like the bob's hydraulic for your type rig, it's faster, it's lighter on the transom and it's far less prone to salt exposure. I'd go no bigger than 6" and the 4" would be better. Along with the plate and proper flats prop, a compression plate to trap the water out of the tunnel and onto the prop will make a big difference in how it runs.

Thanks Pat for your input. I will definitely keep that in mind when I take it to put jackplate on.

yep 10" setback will make your boat run like [censored]. The less setback the better. I run a 4" on a shallow sport with a good cav. plate and I have no problem getting up in 8"< up and run in a hell of a lot less.

....Pat is dead on. I can't believe someone in the business would recommend a setback like that! Also be advised that unless your dealer has some Bob's products in stock that they are backlogged like crazy and you might have to wait a bit to get the thing.


...so good it tastes like it died screaming!
