    Securing fenders

    I had trouble losing a couple fenders with these plastic hangers so I added a small piece of plastic to the underside. After the clip is on the rail I just swing the added piece under the rail . The screw is reasonably tight so that there is enough friction to keep it from moving but easy...

    Jack plate

    I am not sure where the water intake is on other brands but on the Evinrude they are well below the anit ventilation plate . When I have the jack plate at the highest 7” position the anti-ventilation plate is just below the waterline. #10 on diagram.

    Adjustable Seat Pedestal project.

    Jack plate

    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...
