I looked at the Happy Troller Plate online.  It looks like there must be cable that runs up from the plate so that you can move the plate up and down.  I couldn't tell from the online pictures.  Is the cable long enough to run half-way up the boat to where the steering wheel is and boat throttle or is the cable relatively short so that it runs up the outboard/transom near the back of the boat?  Did you find it difficult to install?  I've got a 40 HP outboard so it sounds like this may be a good way to go.

Can't remember exact length of cable, add on if needed I guess.  I think you have to drill a couple of holes in the cavitation plate to attach the Happy Troll, was not difficult.  I tried it on my 150 hp with my Trophy.  I found it very hard to steer when it was down, however the Trophy is not a spritely steerable boat at slow speeds to begin with.   :rolleyes:  I also forgot to pull it up a time or two so there is a definite crease where the plate bent  :( as I took off, but it is straight now.
