As we saw in the previous article concerning the appropriate mounting height of our engine we can not achieve at the same time, in the same combination boat-engine-propeller, both the maximum speed and the greater thrust at low rpm. The solution to this problem can provide the use of a hydraulic Jack Plate which enables us to adjust the vertical position of our engine only with a button, even when the boat is on plane.
Before proceeding to mounting a bracket on our transom we should first assess whether it is compatible with our boat and, of course, we need to know what we want to gain with this addition and to what extent. Therefore we must weigh the consequences and decide which the intended use of our boat is.
Our free space on the rib might be limited enough but this does not mean that it is forbidden for our little children. There is absolute agreement with those who believe that little children can indeed accompany us in our sea excursions even though they might deprive us of some of our freedom, and get on our nerves making us function nervously.
