I did mount the mini 7" bracket using the same holes. I was careful to not cover the holes so I could use the same ones for remounting. The jack plate is a 4" set back and has 7" of travel and will mount to the bracket. It will have 11"s total set back. I was figuring with being able to raise it 7"s that the motor would clear the transom. Once I get the console in and finish doing some glassing, I will put the jack plate on and then the motor and do as you suggested. That's a good idea, and could be real time saver. Thanks.
