: : Was wondering if anyone has had good or bad luck with Trolling Plates on outboards. I have a 175 Merc. that wants to run 3.5 to 4.0 mph and am considering the plate as an alternative to a kicker. Please email with info....Thanks

: ive used trolling plates before they work just fine another alternative is a sea anchor (drift sock)a little advice though dont forget to raise plate before takeoff also my expereince is they get noisy with vibration after being used hope this helps good luck

A friend of mine designed and built a trolling plate that has springs to lift and lock at take off. No worry about not lifting before start. When you take off, ita will lift and lock into place. When you want to release pull string and down it goes. AHeavy cast alum. On sale for $ 70.
If interested email.
