    I am going to repower my Native 17 with a Yamaha f40. The only option the includes a tiller handle does not have tilt and trim. I am considering the CMC tilt and trim jack plate. Does anybody have any experience with either the motor or the cmc jack plate? I'd like to hear some reviews as well as any other options you guys can think of!

    Why can't you get an f 40 with factory power trim?

    I just bought a used 14 SUV with a 20 Tohatsu, which did not have TNT (can't imagine!). My quick advice is to mount it as high as possible, leaving the option of moving the motor down if there are more than one adjusting holes on the motor mount. I found that the higher you can mount it the better, with an option to move it down an inch if too much cavitation occurs. I love mine. I get an extra 5mph.

    Forgot to say it is a CMC PT-35. You can call CMC for some help/advice, but be sure to ask for Eric. The other CS guy is not as helpful.

    I really like mine. The install is easy...measure twice. ;)

    I put the relays in a small electrical box. The link below may be helpful.
