What is a jackplate?

A mechanical device intended to be mounted between the transom and the engine, allowing one to raise or lower the engine with respect to the height of the underside of the boat, without unbolting the engine from the boat. Typically, they offer a setback distance 5" or more which supposedly gives the engine better performance capabilities.

That's the short answer.

The most recent CETACEA page shows a jackplate installed on a small Whaler.

There is a long reference article about engine brackets and jackplates which has been available for about a year and has proven to be popular with visitors (viewed over 7,000 times).

There are several other CETACEA articles which show jackplates installed on Whalers, too.
