I have a hydraulic jackplate on my 24 foot Blazer Bay. It's a deep V 17 degree deadrise, and I'll positively tell you that it helps me out. You can rock it up a bit and get another 3 or 4 inches of clearance or so at low-plane speeds, which can make a nice difference. You'll learn to play with it too, to assist the hole shot, you can buy a few inches punch-up depth with them if you learn to jack it down while just starting plane.
