Hi matt hope you're all good?

I put a new 25 mariner with pt and elec start on my ribcraft last year.

What you want is quite possible but rare which means expensive!

The smaller engines don't have separate trim and tilt ranges...Just one continues tilt speed...

I was told is not designed as a trim function.. But can be used so.. And works fine for me...

Pics on here somwhere of the ribcraft 3.5 it went on. See you on the river soon

Pete

And what do the English know about the "English" language?

Yes I did. My brain was a little fuzzy last night after a 13 hour work day. I am wrong though in that they do make motors with "Tilt and Trim", along with motors with just "Trim". Never imagined that before, and never seen just trim on outdrives which I am more familiar with than outboards. We have always just said "Trim it all the way up" for recovery", not "Trim the motor as far as it will go, then tilt it up".

Still don't see a need for it on a tiny boat motor, and it would just add a fair amount of weight, along with having to locate the pump and control units somewhere on a tiny boat. More to service too.

Is there not also 'tilt assist', with a gas strut that takes off some of the effort?

Yes, that is what I have. You pull a lever to release it, and the gas strut does help. It must be in neutral to trim it up, but I can trim it down while underway. When trimmed all the way up, or is that tilted? The outboard slowly settles down to the lowest position.

Oh for God's sake! How about we leave the Yanks alone in case they decide to show you the difference between Carpet Biting and Carpet Bombing

Let's investigate the meaning of "Trimming" in a little more depth...

Hi All,

Thanks for a lot of valid and helpful points, it's power tilt I will need, trim doesn't affect me at all. Does make me laugh how I've spoken to a multitude of dealers and they've all been too unsure to quote me or just said it's impossible, yet in 48 hours I've received all the info I needed.

Cheers again

Matt

Hi Pete,

It's been a while, hopefully you're well, and glad to hear you're still into the boating.

Is it expensive but in this case it's a necessity, so hopefully won't break the bank. Was it RIBs Marine you went through to get yours?

All the best

Matt
