so far so good.  Smooth quiet actuator.  No need for external tanks.  There are just two solenoids to mount.  It is a very nice piece for the money.  I was actually surprised how nicely this is.  If there are any pics you want to see let me know.  All those pics were taken with my cell phone.

How much did you get it for?
Best price I've seen for it so far is $599

That is a pretty good price.  I paid a little more than that.  But, i also needed to have some things modified on my honda to fit the jp.  The transom tabs had to be cut off and also the jp had to be drilled and tapped to fit the smaller honda mounting holes.

How high is the cavitation plate from the bottom of the hull when it's jacked all the way up?

My cavitation plate on my motor is 4" above the bottom of the hull with a manual jack plate and cupped 3 blade prop.



BTW, the skiff looks good!

brazilnut,
busted out the tape measure, looks like 4 1/4 to 4 3/8ths.

Thanks for the compliment.  Everyone likes the color combo.  Moondust top cap, with seafoam green.

Ran the boat through the paces today and i must say this jack plate performs very well.  And i ran is some skinny stuff today.  Very happy with the atlas.

When you ran it, how high were you able to get the jack plate up above the transom before you got bad results?

Richard has to change the bolts out on my jack plate and he has the bolts in the middle setting of the jackplate mount giving the me option moving them up or down. I told him I would try to find measurements between the cavitation plate and the keel. I would rather be able to lift the engine too high as opposed to not high enough. I gave him your 4 3/8" measurement as base line, but I wanted to give him better numbers if I could find them.
