Jack Plates are the perfect solution for long shaft engines with a short shaft transom! The engine side holes of the Jack Plate is drilled 1.500 inches higher than the transom side. Combined with the 4 inches of adjustable vertical lift you can obtain 5.500 inches at a maximum height to raise your long shaft engine and make it workable on a short shaft transom boat!

Here are the pre-drilled hole dimensions listed below in inches:

  • Pre-drilled holes for 1/2'' stainless hardware
  • 12 7/8'' across the top two holes from center to center
  • 9 7/8'' across the bottom two holes from center to center
  • 8'' of vertical distance between the top holes and bottom mounting holes

If your holes do not match this configuration, you can drill into the aluminum plate. However, by modifying the unit returns will not be accepted.

    Had to get a further setback jackplate to clear hydro steering on my flats boat. Vance was amazing to work with. They even offered me a generous military discount which helps a lot and is appreciated. Jackplate is the highest quality probably because it’s built in America by Americans!! Will definitely recommend to anyone in the market!
