i have a 98 40 hp yamaha with p t/t "about 200lbs"on my 86 bw 13', but the motor is set lower in the water than my older motor,is it possible to install a cmc 5"vertical extension"14lbs" or manual jackplate with 5"set back "32lbs" so i can in shallow water, please give me some thoughts, thanks

If that is possible that could help me resolve the issue about only using
a 15" short shaft motor on my 1968 13'Whaler.
I never thought about using a jack plate so
that I could use a 20" shaft motor with power tilt and trim options. I'm sure somebody has done that we just need the feed back from the Whaler crowd.

Larry Goltz and I have been working on a comprehensive article about jackplates, which will appear this weekend. I think you will find it interesting.
Also, look at CETACEA Page 28.

Sorry, I only knew where the picture was, it is on a 13 sport that has been for sale on boattraderonline for quite some time. You might give the guy (I think it is a dealer) a call and see if he can get a manufacturers name off the bracket.

Check out the new West Marine catalogue,They have a bracket made for installing a 20 ich motor on a 15in transom.I think it was 89.00

I think the engine mounting bracket you are seeing is one made by T&H Marine. It is not a "jackplate" in that there is no vertical adjustment. The setback is minimal, but it does look like just the solution for using a 20-inch shaft outboard on a boat with a 15-inch transom height.
