Hi all...am a newbie here. Apologies for launching straight in with a "Wanted"....hope it's okay.
Am a member on RIBnet and came across this site whilst searching for info on Jack Plates (few of the same members i think).
I have a RIB which currently runs a 20" shaft and think i've just sourced an XL 25" shaft replacement (good as I'm keen to get the powerhead up higher etc). It's not a big lump, just a 150 Optimax....
Have been looking at raising the transom, but think a jack (manual probably due to cost /no need to adjust) is way to go as it will bolt straight on with no new holes etc.
Not all that clued up on them, so open to any suggestions /options, but had wanted as little set back as poss with a 5 inch lift.
Can get new from states with 2.5" set back, but there's obviusly shipping to pay. Was wondering if anyone supplied in the UK new or whether there was anyone with on for sale secondhand that might work.....
Looks a great site, have enjoyed reading through threads...
