    This question is for anyone running a jack plate on their HB Waterman. I am going to install one and was wondering what is the purpose of the black Starboard between the motor and the transom? Should that be removed before I install the jack plate or just leave it and bolt the jack plate to it? Is there anything structural about it?

    Thanks...Jerry

    Mine has the starboard mounted. Not sure what it's for. Maybe preventing backsplash?
