Jackplate for Vista/Nissan

Hi Randy,

    I am considering putting a 6" manual jackplate on my Canadian Edition Vista with a Nissan NS90A.  I have never installed a jackplate before and was wondering what is the correct procedure.  At what height should I install it, would you set it so that the 'normal' height of the motor (what it is now) is in the middle of the height adjustment range?

Mark,  

Start with the height in the middle but most important is the steering and general clearances. You will find some interesting compromises will have to be made to ensure clearance when tilted fully and turned etc. Bolt it on and check everything out, then go have some fun.
