Hey 77 Viper,
Thanks for the reply ; you have a setback of 2.5 or the height is around 2.5 . The market has so many different set back from 2-8 in, i ran a jack plate that was very close to trans. on my last vector but that was back in 1979 with a hand built 235 ,,,,, after bottom work and all the hand work on the 235 it ir ran 92-94 mph . I am in hopes of 100plus with new horsepower , these vectors are a kick at that speed .
Thanks again
Max
