Hi everyone,

I've been lurking for a while...great site! I've been restoring a 16' Whaler (1962 I think) and I found a good deal on a 1991 Evinrude 88. The engine only has about 50 hours on it and looks brand new so I bought it for $1200. This model engine doesn't have power tilt and trim and I would like to add it. I found this website http://www.cook-mfg.com/ and they have a unit that looks pretty good to me. I can buy the PT130 at Cabela's for $424.99. In addition to giving me the tilt/trim feature it will move the engine back 6 inches. What does everyone think about this idea?

Congratulations on your purchase. I have a 62 Nauset that I bought in March. You're the first person I've encountered with the same boat/same year. The setback of the engine should help the ride. That is one of the benefits of using a hydraulic jack plate, common in my part of Florida. They also raise the motor vertically, allowing higher speeds (less drag) and shallow operation. I would check with some of the jack plate manufacturers to see if they offer something that would work for you. You may find that the vertical lift may be possible in addition to your trim/tilt, without spending a whole lot more money.

It interesting, 5 years later Cabelas sells the same item for $464.99 and www.boatownersworld.com sells it for $412.99 (both no gauge)

One site raised their price and the other lowered it.
