re: Why are outboard motors so &%$*^$ expensive! (Posted on 7/14/14 at 11:55 pm to Boats n Hose)
I pick up tons by raising the motors up while I'm running. Makes a huge diff when you don't have the lower unit dragging 1 ft or more below the boat acting like an anchor. Jackplates are not just for speed.
