I was reading another topic prop vs. jet. What is a jack plate or bay kit. And how does it work so that you can switch your lower unit faster between prop or jet.

Troller...A bay kit is in simple terms an extention to lengthen your Transom : Prop length. While a Jack plate is mounted to your transom which your motor mounts to directly. A jack plate will extend your motor back off the transom from 3" to 6" normally with the ability to then raise and low parallel to your transom. there by you now have two axis of postioning with your motor, the trim and vertical postioning.
