    Some of the products I saw looked poor quality but they still wanted a couple hundred bucks for them. They wanted over a hundred for a fixed mount that looked weak.

    I did see the cool jack lift systems that looked very good, including on-the-fly hydraulic systems, but those were very expensive and limited vertical travel of 4-7 inches.

    This manual jack plate has 5" vertical travel but I'm sure someone who is a good machinist could make it with much more travel and motorized.

        Yes I have checked out jack plates but all have short travel, started building a system couple years back but has some one due the welding - not set up for aluminum, it came back warped so is sitting in the start over pile.
