Jack Plate vs. Panther tilt

Recommended Posts

I just wrecked my control box on my Panther Model 40 tilt unit. I'm looking at a jack plate now to replace it. I have a 30 Yamaha on a 14 foot deep and wide tin boat. Would the Jack Plate raise the bow a bit like the Panther? or is it for just running in shallow water? I used the boat without the Panther and the front really plows with one other person on board sitting in the middle. The motor is tilted back to second last hole.

Just for running shallow water floater.

I run a jack plate on my boat and it works in concert with my power trim to run super shallow and it also increases performance while running as I can lift my motor higher to reduce drag from the lower unit.

Thanks for the info. I actually found a new control unit on Amaz.... I guess i'm just going to fix the Panther and re-install it. I like the way I can smooth out the ride. Thanks again.

      Hi all, The weather is crazy here, seems to be the norm nowadays. Friday was +1℃ and today is meant to be going up to +5℃, its usually around -15℃ daytime and approaching 'minus completely ridiculous℃' at night.   So, with school finished and both of us gravitating towards the couch and our phones/ipads, I suggested we take advantage of the warm weather and head out on the skidoos. Jack didn't need any persuading and he got dressed for a ride while I went to fire up his Yammy Bravo whi

      Hi all, Jack finally asked to come fishing with me the other evening, he's been off even going in the boat recently so off we went. My next door neighbour Bob saw us headed down the lawn with bait and joined us to Jack's delight, I also love it when Bob tags along, really great guy.

      Hey folks, We are looking at a cottage on Jack's Lake (Apsley) in July. I know squat about the lake and am wondering if anyone here knows anything about it? We would prefer a lake that isn't a nut house in the summer and we would also like an opportunity to catch a few fish. Is this place a zoo in July and has anyone had any decent luck in it? We have a group of ten people which is making our search a challenge... any suggestions are welcome. We are willing to drive what it takes,

      Hi all,   Went out for a half hour boat ride while we waited for it to get dark to do some fireworks. Got a few fish and just left the camera rolling for the ten minutes we were fishing, got quite the conversation going, toilet humour at its best. Jack totally lost it laughing when he realized I was recording the whole conversation...I LOVE the little guy....so funny.
