The shaft is angled ~10 deg. from vertical so turning the motor/tiller 45 deg. will tilt the motor (up or down) ~5 deg. Although I haven't had it in the water yet, with the motor, I can't see the little up/down angle being a problem. I'm thinking, as you suggest, it will work just fine.

All that is left is to get battery and wire it, then license/hull numbers. Then I'll be ready for shakedown cruise.
