electric trim (add-on)

Recommended Posts

clam up

This is probably a long shot...but I was thinking..... Has anyone ever heard of any aftermarket universal electric trim kits for an outboard motor. I have a 30hp Suzuki and it sure would be nice to have a little assistance to get her out of the water at times when motoring through the shallows and such. I couldn't find much on the internet regarding this and I like this motor too much to trade it off for a new one with the bells and whistles.

I'd try contacting a dealership. Maybe a Suzuki dealer would have something for you. Or a marine repair shop of some sort.

I looked into a unit for my older Johnson 25 a few years ago. It was an aftermarket unit that could not be used when the motor as under throttle or it would bend the lift rod. It was pretty spendy too, so I decided against it. Check with a dealer to see if you can add tilt to your motor.

I think I have seen adds for things like this. You might try looking in Bass and Walleye Boat magizine. I bet they weill have an add for someone that can set ya up.

Do a web search for Cook Manufacturing Corporation. They have what you're looking for. They may be a bit on the spendy side, but in the aftermarket world of jack plates, TnT's and set-backs, there are none finer.

HELLO CLAM,
I RECENTLY INSTALLED AN AFTERMKT TRIM KIT ON MY 1984 50HP MERC. WORKS LIKE A SONG.
BRAND IS CMC. AVAILABLE AT MOST LARGER STORES. CABELAS, BASS PRO SHOPS.
THEY MAKE 2 SIZES WITH A 30 HORSE YOU MAY BE ABLE TO GET AWAY WITH THE SMALLER OF THE 2.
I LOOKED FOR ABOUT 3 YEARS BEFORE I PULLED THE TRIGGER ON THIS ONE AND AM VERY PLEASED WITH IT. GOOD LUCK, WALTER.

I've had a CMC mount on my boat for 8 years, works great, only issue was I had to replace the brushes on the trim motor after 2nd year.

      Anyone have any luck around stuntz bay seven sisters area lately?
    • jkrash
      I heard the guides are on to the walleye bite on the west end, finally the fish have returned and it appears there's a few good year classes.

      @Tom Sawyer Its not supposed to be that way.  Is it??  It stinks when everything else gets in the way of spending some time on the water. 😒

      I couldn't agree more Jarrid,  modifying the possession/ catch limits would probably help preserve and enhance the fishery. Several years ago when I was still living in the St. Cloud area, there was a lake outside of Albany that a  couple of year classes of Croppies came into their own. After  the increased pressure of both one hard and the following open water season  that lake saw, it was like  the Dead Sea after that.  Personally, if I find an active school, I won't keep my limit, just enough for a meal with the family.

      To call this summer "busy", would be the understatement of the year for me.....

      Been out of town for most of my fishing as well.  Looking forward to being in the boat around home in the coming weeks.  It’s just never for the amount of hours I get on board for the out of town trips.  More like 2-4, maybe 6 hours at best here.  Never the marathon 12-15 hour days I’ve been blessed to have a few times this season so far. I did just walk down to the river to make a few casts for my evening fix and picked up a 17.5 smallie on a Pop R.  That’ll have to do for today. 😉

      Was up on the big V for the last week with the family.  First time for all of us on the lake.  And for a newbie, it was really tough fishing all week long.  We did better than every group we talked to in our resort, but that is not saying much.  Because of weather and other things, we fished for on 5 days, and managed just about 5 limits of Walleye total.  Was a great week to be on the lake though, what a beautiful lake, and everything else was awesome.  Just need better information for next visit.

      Thanks for the compliment.  I've been up in the Cass Lake area the past few weeks.  Did very well on eyes but really struggled to find the crappies and I wasn't alone.   
    • osok
      This surprises me Borch.  5-6 years ago when I was  living in the St. Cloud area, if you looked up "Mr. Consistency"  in the dictionary, your mugshot would come up.  Things must be all whacked out.

      I am a catfish guy, but until now, i was unaware that i can legally use small bullheads for bait. However, I have never actually targeted them before, so i am just wondering if anyone knows of any "hotspots" for bullheads (if there is such a thing)
