    1" of rise for every 12" of run is the rule of thumb. With the motor mounted to the transom of a boat, you'll generally want the anti cav. plate about 1/4-1/2" above the keel bottom.

    Moving the motors up and down is no big deal... Just need a motor hoist of some sort. I rent a hydraulic motor hoist for $30... Un bolt and clean up the old sealant, put new sealant and bolt back in the next hole up or down...

    Mounting outboards on bracket

    I have a 93 Mako 233 Walk-Around with the bracket and twin 140 Suzuki

    4 stokes.

    How high should the Cavitation plate above the bottom of the hull?

    I have "heard" 1 inch for every 12 inches of bracket.

    Does this sound correct?

    Also how hard is it to move the motors up? and how do you do it?
