Cmc Marine Pl-65 Transom Jack Plates By T-H Marine Reviews:


works well could use a couple improvements

I converted my 115 Yamaha 2 stroke from a jet pump to prop and needed to change the transom height. This was a great solution so I can reinstall and use the jet in the future. Installation was pretty straight forward and it seems to work very well once installed. However I'd like to see some changes. 1- better quality actuator power cord - the outer plastic insulation is very stiff in cooler weather say 30- 45 degrees F. Living in remote Alaska we may work down into the 20s even colder and I'm concerned the cord to the actuator unit might break. 2-The plastic connector DID break in high 30's as I was installing and I had to replace it - which may nullify the warranty - boo. Also the wires were reversed in this connector so no matter what I did to the control switch Up was Down and Down was Up until I replaced the connector. 3-Updating the instruction sheet with some color photos might make them a little easier to follow. 4- please include fluid recommendations for cold weather operations. The customer help online was VERY FAST and helpful but it would be nice to have it on the printed sheets. In my chilly weather the supplied fluid was pretty slow. Haven't done the replacement yet - too cold now will have to wait for spring. I'm wondering how quickly this will work in warmer weather; its not a hight speed lift in 30s. 5- kudos for marking the wires to the control switch - very helpful. 6- this is a very sturdy unit and inspires confidence. 7- a friend has one [10 inch] holding his 90 hp 4 stroke Yamaha and loves it. Overall - a real answer to my needs and I didn't have to have my transom cut and rewelded.

CMC PL-65 Jack Plate forJet Boat

I recently converted my 90hp Merc to a Jet on my 17 foot starcraft. The transom jack works exactly as it should in this application. Solidly built and the holes lined up perfectly for the motor. Only thing I wish is that it had another inch or two of travel so I could cut down on the transom spray from the jet. No problems with cavitation/air ingestion due to the set back of the plate which some people had told me could be a possibility. Easy to put on, had the motor mounted and the jet pump converted in a few hours. I am very pleased with this product.

CMC manual jack plate

Purchased the manual jack plate for my 16' fiberglass bass boat. Boat would porpoise when trimmed up, even with a hydrofoil. Installed the jack plate, and porpoising was eliminated and I no longer need the hydrofoil. Boat gained about 2-3 mph also. Couldn't be happier. Jack plate is well built and easy to adjust. Predrilled holes lined up perfectly to my 100 hp 4 cylinder.
