I am looking to put a Bobs 4" set back hydraulic jack plate on the back of my 2008 Hewes RF 16. I have a yamaha F90 0n the boat and run a 4 blade solas amita (13d x 15p) i want to have engine power in the skinny water and not rely on the trolling motor to get me into deeper water. Has anyone put a Jack Plate on a 16 Red Fisher and what were the results ? Thanks :-)

I just bought a 2200TRS. I'm trying to figure out the "sweet spots" for the jack plate and trim. I know there are many factors such as speed, water conditions,etc. I'm new to using a jack plate and I quickly figured out that you don't want it all the way up at high speeds. Especially while turning. My jack plate goes from 1 to 6 (1 with motor down and 6 with motor all the way up. The trim has about 10 bars (no bars for down and 10 for all the way up. Any tips on trib tabs would be great as well.
