    USA Getting on Plane- Hydro Jackplate question?

    With Motor trimmed down- ready to get on plane, where do most guys keep the hydro jackplate set at- almost all the way up or mid range?

    I start with it all the way up. As soon as you punch it start lowering the jack plate. If it starts cavitating, feather throttle back until you get bite.

    You can see Bobby Lane doing this technique here :
