G2 and jackplates

I have a G2 250 HO on the way to replace a 250 pro xs. I am currently running a 10 inch Atlas Hydraulic jackplate which I know I cannot use with the G2 because of the built in set back. What I am wondering is,  the Atlas is two sections, a four inch on the transom and the six inch with the hydraulics bolted  to that. Can I just use the six inch plate or is that still to much setback. The boat is a Triton 21 TRX.

 

Thanks, Rick

That question is better answered by both the manufacturer of the Atlas Hydrauilic Jackplate and by Triton Boats.

Ranger would only approve a 4" for mine when ordering.

Thank you, I ordered the four inch plate for the Triton as well.

Re: G2 and jackplates

The 4" will still allow plenty of room for power-poles or talons.  I have two power poles on my Atlas 4" and a Lowrance side imaging transducer mounted to the plate with a transducer saver shield bracket.  Clean look!
