Title: Power tilt and trim system for outboard drive

Abstract: A power tilt and trim system for an outboard drive includes an improved construction that can be formed in compact nature without significantly reducing its strength. The system includes a support member that couples to the outboard motor. The support member has a pair of bracket arms spaced apart from each other and one of the bracket arms has an opening. An actuator is nested between the bracket arms to tilt the outboard drive. A powering assembly is disposed next to the actuator and arranged to power the actuator. At least a portion of the powering assembly lies within the opening.
