If you pick up a popular bass fishing magazine, speed boating article, or any boating article that has a strong focus on the more technical aspects of boat engineering, then you’ll eventually come across something mentioning “Jack Plates.”
While the name sounds simple and the functionality is even simpler, jack plates actually work on some very complicated engineering principles.
These small and simple mounting plates play a major role in improving the performance of these high-speed boats and are one of the latest advancements in boating technology.
Many powerboat owners rave about the improvements their jack plates make, but jack plates are much less common on pontoon boats.
In today’s article, we’re going to take a closer look at what jack plates are, how they work, and discuss whether a pontoon boat jack plate is a good idea.
Just a warning- this article may get a bit technical, so you might want to bookmark the page or take some notes to show your buddies the next time you all hit the marina!
