New Jer Power Trim: for instant control of every boating situation... Just press a button. MerCruiser Power Trim is unique. Competi tive power "lift" systems simply raise or lower the stern drive unit for beaching, maintenance, etc. With Power Trim you adjust the angle of your unit for optimum performance as load and water conditions vary while underway, at full power or idle. Say you want to get a couple of skiers up fast. You just press the button and your unit trims under to give you more dig. Once the skiers are on plane and you want more speed, you press the button again and your lower unit trims out, increasing speed. In both these examples, you're getting more performance and better gasoline mileage. MerCruiser Power Trim works whether you're easing up to a dock or running full bore in rough water. There's never been anything like it. It's standard equipment on 5 new MerCruiser models: 120, 160, 225, 250 and 325 hp. MerCruiser: The Payoff is Performance. See your MerCruiser dealer.
