old 25hp Merc no shallow water trim?

I have an old 1993 Merc which only has the full tilt lock for trailering etc and not the shallow water drive I am used to.

Is this common not to have this? ive had tons of outboards over the years and all the small ones have had this "two stage" tilt?

Is there anyway of retro-fitting or other solutions, I have a bit of wood I use when towing but theres no way of wedging to get the right angle, maybe a block of wood in between the transom mounts would work?

I had a 1960s designed 4 with no tilt lock- just used friction!

I used a block of wood. Will try to get a pic or two but might be a couple of days. ...
