10" eng. set back plate/wedge kit

I have installed a 10" pro high-jacker set back plate this moves the eng out of the eng. well and allowed me to install a drop leaf floor to the rear of my cockpit covering up the eng. well so I can now stand behind my pedestal "helsman seat still in the making" the set back is a heavy duty one 1/2" alum. ment for a V-6 outboard eng but it was what I had to go with to get the 10" set back I needed it is also adj. which allowed me to set my eng. cavitaion plate even with the bottom of my transom I have to install the 10" trim plate I bought that fits on the bottom of the set back this along with the wedge kit will give me more top end speed cruise on plane with lower RPM's will save gas it will give me the equal benifit of adding ten more HP without buying a bigger eng. it also increases the hull length under power which is good. The set back weight is 45# with that & moving the eng. back it should give me the extra ballast where I will need it when flying 2 or 3 head sails at once .

Cheers John
