The Skinny on Jack Plates

A must read from Yamaha Outboard if you have or are considering installing a jack plate.

 

The Skinny on Jack Plates

Boater’s Log Vol. 6, No. 7

Should Your Skiff Have One?

If you run any kind of skiff or bass boat in shallow water, consider this column a must-read. Electro-hydraulic jack plates are add-on brackets that provide two more adjustability dimensions to your outboard engine trim: straight up and down.

A jackplate can improve both overall and shallow-water performance.

The jack plate accomplishes several significant functions:

  • It enables you to run in shallower water than allowed by a standard, fixed engine mount.
  • It allows you to get up on plane in shallower water than allowed by a standard, fixed engine mount.
  • When trimming an engine for best performance, a jack plate affords you better fuel economy, thanks to channeling thrust in the most efficient direction – parallel to the water’s surface.

Add in the fact that an outboard operates under some of the harshest environmental conditions imaginable, and maintenance becomes even more critical. High load, high-RPM operation, extreme temperatures, high moisture, and periods of non-use all take a toll on your outboard.Following simple maintenance procedures, sticking to a schedule and using recommended products will help to enhance the performance and extend the life of Yamaha outboard.
