    Hey everyone
    I have a 18 Gladesmen with a 25 hp merc two stroke with manual trim/tilt i was thinking of putting one of these on.
    Has anyone ever used this one or have any others they recommend. I also have a manual jackplate already mounted would these effect it?

  3. Yes I put one one on my sc 16 and I would not own another manual tilt engine with a poling platform. Such a pain to have to crawl under the platform and tilt the engine up and down every time in shallow water, coming from idling in shallow water to on plane and anything in between. It doesn't weight any more then a manual jackplate and they are pretty bulletproof. Tilts up and down very quick and will give you some more mph and make the boat handle all around better because you can trim the motor up and down on the fly because there is no fixed perfect setting for any boats trim

    do it! You'll see some performance gain. The unit acts like a fixed jack plate too, raising the motor up a few inches. My skiff came alive after adding the unit, by being able to trim out the motor to the sweet spot. I have a yamaha 25 2stroke with a 12p cupped 3blade. Your gladesman should haul ass!

    Thanks everyone I think I'm gonna buy one as soon as I save some money up, I was also thinking would it be alright to mount it to the jack plate or should I take the jack plate off and mount it straight to the boat?
