Try CMC or Atlas Jackeplates. Price will depend on size of the plate, You could use a 6" or 8" setback on that size boat/motor. A local boat dealer quoted me $1200 total for a 10" hydraulic CMC w/ height gauge and $1500 for the Atlas. they arent cheap but im sure there are better deals out there

One more thing: any opinions between 18 and 20 foot bays?

Go 20' it's worth the extra room. The 18 is very small compared to the 20 I wish I would have gotten the 22 but settled for the 20. It's got the 115 and you will be glad you have the extra space when fishing two or three

yes the extra room is worth it no doubt. Fishing 2 is perfect and with the large decks 3 is pretty damn easy also. I just wish they had space under the leaning seat for an ice chest

That would be great. I will be fishing tomorrow so i can go pick it up this afternoon. I have thought about getting a soft side cooler and put it in the live well when no fish were in it or put it by the foot rest
