Does anybody make an aftermarket power tilt/trim for my my 95 Johnson 25? OR know what years and sizes might be compatible if I find a donor or parts?

Pretty much has to be an add-on jack plate style with that feature. Factory had nothing for a 2 cylinder 25hp.

CMC has a smaller version of their power tilt for outboards under 35 hp for around $550 I believe. I have been looking for one for the 25 hp I have and have settle I think on this style after looking at several. I am currently watching ebay and craigslist for one, but may have to bite the bullet. The older I get the harder it is for me to raise outboards up from inside the boat. I will hopefully have one by next spring.

I have owned the CMC unit. The smaller one isn't all that great. It will give issues. The larger one for big motors doesn't give many problems.

I have a friend that has the Panther unit and he has beat and banged that thing for 3 years now. He should be a field tester for them. If all of them are as good as his they are much better than the small CMC units.
