Tilt up Honda 8hp. how much tilt?

I have a Lancer 25 with a hole in the transom to mount an outboard. My problem is, when I tilt my honda 8hp up as far as it will go, the prop and the zinc are still in the water. I was thinking if I could tilt it up a little more (I still have got to figure out how to do this) then I don't have to worry about it being in the water and the problems this can cause.

Can this be done without any problems? If so, have any of you done this? If so, how? BTW, taking it off isn't an option.
