How high should I mount my engine on the jack plate? 1720
I see on the plate it looks like on the lowest setting it's going to raise the motor up 2.5" over where it would be on the transom. I imagine this is due to the 6" setback it will be in cleaner water so it can be higher already? Well at the moment my motor is one hole up from the lowest setting, which I believe to be too low.. I can't get the prop to blow out on plane no matter what I do with the trim. So my plan before I got the plate was to raise the motor up one or maybe two holes and see what happens. Do you think I should mount the motor on the jack plate at the same mounting hole it's on now, or raise it up one/two holes like I had planned on?
