Hey everyone, I am in the process of building a Skimmer Skiff and I am stuck on the Jackplate.
Is it essential to have on a skimmer 16? If so can I get away with a manual?
Any other intel would be greatly appreciated!
I know this probably has been discussed quite a few times but I searched the forum and couldn't find an answer.
I have a Suzuki DF20a on my LT25. Currently most of the weight is in the back of the boat, including me, Vance jackplate, gas tank, and a freshly installed rear deck and hatch.
I have a 1756 Lowe VT tinny. It has a manual Jackplate. Runs fine but I'd like to go skinnier.
Can I raise the engine even more if I add sponsons?
Can I raise the engine even more if I add a compression plate?
What if I add both?
