Jack Plates

Postby Capt. Rory Rorison » Fri Apr 11, 2008 11:46 pm

I have been shopping for a 2400 BB and one of the options I have requested is a hydraulic jack plate. I did not ask for a certain size, but one dealer told me that what they included in their price was a 10". Is that standard for this hull? I did not think I needed that much setback. If that is what the factory recommends fine. Who has one and what size do you have?

I believe the 10'' that they are refering to is the rise up and down not the offset from the transom. Hydro Dynamics makes the jack plate that I have on my 1960 and it is called a 7'' because of the travel up and down but is only 4'' offset from the transom which I believe is the standard on the 10'' and the 7'' plates. The one that comes standard is the manual jack plate and not a hydraulic. Hope this helps.

Hey Capt. Rory
i have the 2400 with 10" Jack plate works fine. i talked to Eric on Monday he told me you ordered your boat though him.
That's a good deal he is a great guy to work with.
Seen some of your post looks like you have been catching some fish.
I called in sick yesterday to work and went out on a solo trip did really well with the reds by noon i had caught 20 biggest 30".
