    Been into boating for many many years including several years drag racing outboards. Is anyone running a jackplate on these units. Anyone done it? Pro or con reasons for not doing it?

    I bought my boat used with a 115 on a manual jackplate. I believe the reason they used the jackplate was that it was a long shaft motor and that's the only way they could get it high enough. When I upgraded to the 150, I took the jackplate off.

    It will void the warranty for sure. I believe there is an older thread about someone looking to do it a while back. Not sure if they actually did though.

    If you use the search function, I would think you could find it.

    CanCan? wrote about it. I believe he talked to the Bennington engineers about it. He was thinking of using it to get more of the pontoons out of the water for drag reduction.
