Rated 4 out of 5 by 3 reviewers.
Rated 3 out of 5 by problems 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 May 6, 2010
Rated 5 out of 5 by Nice accessory 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. March 30, 2010
Rated 4 out of 5 by 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. January 16, 2009

A: 
Check part numbers. The newer HS has a different part number. The faster models are a little more money. If the price is really low it may be a slower lift.

This unit is made to install with industry standard bolt patterns. If you have any doubts check with CMC online using a search engine to get more details. I found that it just bolted up to my existing holes in my boat when I installed one.

It should, as long as you have a transom that will accept it.

Yes, you should have the new standard bolt pattern. If not you can drill the jack plate and it will not void the warranty.

I've never seen anyone try it. It does add a lot of weight to the transom, so you might not be able to put one on a jon boat. Check with a boat deaer for a better answer.

Depends on what size boat you have. It is a bit heavy so as long as you don't go over the weight rating you should be good.

I would not recommend it for an 8hp. Overkill comes to mind. There are some fixed mount plates out there that are much cheaper and will work well for you.

This unit weighs about 25-30 lbs. I use mine to jack a 150 Optimax so this unit might be overkill for your 8hp.
