So, I'm building my own jackplate...why? because I can do it cheaper than I can buy one...

So a few questions....

1) Is there a preference to using aluminum angle vs. channel? or a reason one should?

2) I have a piece of 1/2 6061 plate for my motor plate...I'm thinking that should be stout enough...any arguments against it?

Thanks folks!

The only benefit to using angle is you can adjust set back. The first jack plate I ever built was two pieces of channel and a plate like your thinking.
