    Anyone put a manual jack-plate on a Gheenoe Classic? How is it? Would it benefit me with my 9.9 Yamaha?

    If you're looking for the absolute best performance from your outboard, get a jackplate.
    If you just want to go fishing, they're not necessary.

    Adjustable on the water manual jack plate. [smiley=1-thumbsup3.gif] With a 9.9 benefit would be small 1 to 3 Mph, will raise your motor 2 to 4 inches.
