Thanks,
I just put my jack under the skeg and did it that way. Only thing I know if I do it again is get the 3m 4200 in a caulking tube instead of a little squeeze tube. It was tough to get the stuff behind the engine bracket with qtips and fingers.

walleye2013 Did it in my drive way with the trailer jack and the skeg on a 2x6. Was a little nervous about doing it this way, but it turned out to be very fast and easy. Was able to test on second hole, and get back out on the 3rd hole 30min-45min later.

walleye2013 Revolutionz, did you get a chance to try and raise motor? If so how did you make out?

Wrong. It's a 25 inch transom

walleye2013 Well I was able to do some test running this evening. Went out with the motor on 2nd hole and took everyone down. Went back home jacked up motor to 3rd hole (1 beer job) then back to water 40min later so was able to test on same conditions. Didn't get any top end gains like we had hoped to see, but hole shot seemed better? Tough to gauge that one when the hole shot was good on both hole settings. The defiant gains tho were, was able to get 100-150more rpm, and emilimated all torque at top end trimmed out. The boat is a pro v 1900 tiller with a custom hydro assist. Was noticing tourqe when at wot trimmed out and by moving motor up to 3rd hole eliminated that. Going to leave it here and run it for a bit and see how it handles in rough water. The cavitation plate still is not completely out at wot trimmed out but the gains already seen are very noticeable and benifical. Possibly try the 4th hole out of curiosity if the 3rd will handle everything as I want it to.

walleye2013 Right on let me know what it does for you. I'm hoping to do the same this weekend as well but we will see what I have for time.

revolutionz I'm going to raise mine up tonight and give it a try this weekend, see what it does for me.
