Is this setup possible?

Hi All

Im trying to get my hands on a brand new 20hp four stroke, short shaft, tiller control with electric start and power trim. Had mixed feedback on whether it's possible to have this arrangement on any outboard, hoping someone can point me in the right direction

Cheers,

Matt

I can not answer if you can get everything, but I am sure you can. Owning a 2 stroke 40hp with electric start, I do not really see a need for power trim on a tiller engine.

I've used a Honda 20 with power tilt, but as you suggest for the Mercury, it didn't have power trim, and it wasn't able to tilt against the thrust at much more than idle power. Power tilt is only to be available on the remote control BF20s anyway.

Similarly, Yamaha's site says power tilt is available for the F20b's EP variants, which are remote control, and says tiller variants are manual tilt.

The engines will still have trim settings that can be manually set to achieve optimum planing speed. I find it difficult to see any advantages of power trim on such a small engine.

Power tilt is useful though.

There would be some convenience in adjusting the trim to suit the load and conditions. That said, having seen how often PTT causes people problems I'd take some convincing that the convenience is worth it.

Here in the USA "tilt" and "trim" are used interchangebly, as a homonym.

You can buy them separately, so it comes down to how much money you want to spend on a small outboard.

I've seen a Mercury 55hp sea pro on the back of a thundercat with PTT, electric start and the tiller. Also somewhere on you tube I once saw a 150hp tiller control... That must've had all those too!

So should be possible
