Lm18 scaled down

Re: Fs14ls s.texas splashed (10-13-19)

Alright... Got my jackplate built and installed and had a chance to give a run ... No drag/backsplash ... Ended up about 5 in back and 3.5-4 " vertical ... But hole shot seems better running about 24-25 mph in light wind and chop.... Overall pleased with it all....

Re: Filler Question

Re: Jack plate question

Ok... Ill just center at 3" on slot with about an inch or so in either direction just in case... I couldn't imagine it would have been much but I've been wrong before , and though I could take it down and modify ... I wasn't really enjoying that thought

(My bottom side starts clenching in less than that anyway) probably add trim tabs soon enough and I should have a good ...
