He Guys,

I got a question a friend of mine has a RR with a 20" motor if we mount the motor to the transom with no plate which hole dose it need to be in? Also if a jackplate is needed what size and setback? Thanks Tom P.S. this is all new to me I'm used to a v bottom.

I'd start one hole up.

Set back depends on horsepower.

when I got my Euro the motor was mounted right on the transom. he had a 260 merc.

we put a 200 merc on it with 6.5 inches of setback. We still have the set back with a 245 but we have a land and sea electric transom jack. the boat runs it's best at about one hole up. But every boat is different.
