Motor is a 99 115, decals read 130(changed decals when I painted outboard) but it pushes the boat quite nicely.. bout 30 mph last time I clocked her using phone app. Really don't care for speed as long as its reliable. Don't know how she will perform now that It has a tunnel. Perhaps it will require more power to bring her up on plane. She's beefy so I think she would handle a 150 to 175 without a problem.

measured top of tunnel to cavitation plate and I was way off ( below). Even after raising motor I am still about 1" under tunnel. Definitely gnna need a jackplate. I belive a manual will do for now.

picked up a broken CMC jackplate (hydraulics were bad) $40 Bucks and used it to raise motor. Now motos sits bout 1 1/2 inches above tunnel. also installed cavitation plate. Will take her out for a spin see how she handles. Am I just about right on height of motor or am I a little over?

That's the same jack plate I have, except mine is just the two outer pieces.

installation of jack plate was a breeze. Once I adjusted to what I think will work, I drilled a couple holes thru sides of plates to lock in place. will test it out and she how she does.

good moring all,

well these are a couple of pics of the set up. Took it out this weekend and was able to get into a lot more shallower water while on plane. I had to throttle out though.. was not able to punch out ( might need a 4 blade prop). Throttle felt a little off, might need and adjustment. biggest concern was over splash,( water over transom). I had too much water splash overboard until the boat was completely on plain. Might it be that I can still raise outboard higher or is the setback of the JACKPLATE affecting it. Or might it not need the caviation plate?

any info would be appreciated,,

Hello to everyone,

Have been thinking of adding a raised center console to be boat. Boat pics are for reference. I believe It will help me maximize space. It will allow me to place gas tank under deck and add additional storage. What is you'll take on it. Has anyone build something like this before. Trying to get an idea of how it will look. Will be adding some front and rear rails kind of like a flounder boat. Still a on going project but it does catch some fish.
