.ow_footer_menu remove margins/padding to desire

<div style="float:right;padding-bottom: 30px;">{$bottomPoweredByLink}</div>

padding-bottom: 30px or set to 0px.

You didn't look very hard :P remember to leave the powered by link :)

This is what i did in  base.css

/* ---- Footer Menu styles ---- */

    font-size: 11px;
    text-align: center;

/* ---- End of Footer Menu styles ---- */

Did you have dev mode turned on when you made these changes? If not then turn it on in ow_includes/config.php or if you have made the changes already delete the template_c in the smarty folder. Its your website cache.

You must be approved to remove that or you will lose support as a license violation.
