Our dock is in about 18” of water and the boat drafts 12” so there is not much steering control with the outboard tilted at 45 degrees. I purchased a Powrtrans Magnum jackplate . It has an sealed electric actuator and allows 7 “ vertical lift which should help a lot in the shallow water. I was able to install it myself.

I’ve thought about a jack plate, but that’s as far as it’s gotten.

There was talk of a jack plate long ago by a very intelligent member, if I remember correctly he said that in discussing it with Bennington that it would cause issues with warranty. Not sure what or how, just stating so other members are aware. It is cool looking from a personal view!

I remember that discussion also - though I was never considering one (especially with just a 50 hp).
