Default Built my jack plate today

Hardest part was getting the hardware correct. Saw Lowes a couple of times tonight. I am pretty happy with how it turned out. I could have done a lot better with the correct tools (at work) but I try to stay away from that place as much as I can. Setback is 5" and I have it set 1/2" above where it was on the transom to start with. I think it is time to lose that huge fin.

Total cost: ~$80

The way it is designed, I can add power trim to it very easy with a standard hydraulic cylinder and a couple more pieces of aluminum angle. I also have provisions for adjuster screws if I want to add them.
