CMC® PL-65 Electric Hydraulic Transom Jack Plate
this jack plate works great. the position indicator shaft broke the first time i lowered it. it appears there was not enough clearance for it to miss the transom plate. there isn't any slop in the rollers so i don't know what the problem is. who should i contact about this problem it is only 2 weeks old have fished with every day

Nice to have for the open water a must for the flats. The gage is accurate, but the speed of the unit itself is a little slow. I can’t complain too much I use mine in salt water most of the time to run my boat in 4 inches of water and it has never let me down. Pretty easy to install in an afternoon with a friends help. Improved top speed by 6mph, plain in much less time, boat handles better in rough water.

Little bit too slow...
I have the CMC PL-65 Hydraulic on my Tracker Tournament V-18. I use it to jack a 150 Optimax. I have had this unit in service for about one year now. I have about 300 hours on it and so far it has performed well. I would have given this jack plate 5 stars but I have found the unit to be a little bit too SLOW. I believe that CMC has a new "high speed" version of this jack plate. I think I will look into this new high speed unit next time around. Thus 4 out of 5 stars.
