Vertical slide motor bracket?

Hi,

I'm trying to mount an 8 hp, 2-stroke Tohatsu outboard on my transom. The boat is a Catri 24 folding trimaran. The rudder has a horizontal hydrofoil, and the rudder can kickup if it hits an obstruction. It that happened, the hydrofoil would get eaten by the prop with a standard motor bracket, such as those by Garelick or Fulton.

I want to find a vertically sliding motor bracket, not the parallel-o-gram type that swings *back* when it is put in the down position.

Does anyone know of a vertical sliding motor bracket?

Thanks,
/John
