Outboard Motor Jack Plates
Jack Plates perform vital functions when it comes to your outboard engine. They can be used to lift your motor higher out of the water, which can be beneficial, especially in shallow water. Outboard jack plates can also provide a setback between the transom and motor, giving the distance between the two and allowing the motor to run more efficiently. They come in a variety of sizes and styles and Wholesale Marine carries an extensive inventory of T-H Marine jack plates along with Bob’s Machine, SeaStar, and Sierra Marine.
Wholesale Marine Stocks Jack Plates For Every Outboard
There are three different types: fixed, manually adjustable, and electric or hydraulic based. Fixed jack plates are just as the name implies; they can be used to lift your engine up into a fixed position. Typically, they are the most economical option for boats, but are limited in overall functionality. The T-H Marine Hi-Jacker Fixed Jack Plate is great for long shaft outboards or V6 outboards up to 150 HP.
Manual jack plates are a more versatile option than the fixed versions. They can be adjusted manually to find the perfect height for your engine. Simply loosen the bolts to raise or lower the engine, and then tighten the bolts back. The T-H Marine CMC Manual Lift Jack Plate has 5 inches of slot adjustments and is a perfect option for smaller V6 motors. For larger motors, T-H Marine Z-Lock Manual Jack Plate is compatible with V6 outboards up to 300HP.
For the most functionality and convenience, check out our selection of hydraulic jack plates. These options allow for a full range of heights for your engine but can be adjusted with the push of a button rather than loosening bolts and manually changing. They use hydraulic rams and pumps to move the plates up or down. T-H Marine Atlas Hydraulic Jack Plates are constructed with a single-piece technology for durability and can handle the heaviest V6 outboards.
