Anyone ever used one of these Vance jackplates?
The price is right but I'm a bit concerned about the hardware. Some of it is brass. Recently, they released on 3" inch set back model. That one has me thinking!

I can't attest to the Vance, but I've had a Hydro-Dynamics manually adjustable 4" setback plate for about 15 years. It uses a combination of alum/stainless/brass for hardware and the combo has been very resistant to corrosion and binding. I love it.

I really like the Bobs Mini Jack...adjustable 4-6" of set back and up to 5" of lift.

ive used a vance manual on a 15 inch transom...it wasnt pretty..well, the 2 lil rooter tails were kinda cute..

that jack will hang down almost to the bottom of a short shaft transom..
