While they are hard to come by, some small trolling motors in the 10-15 hp range have electric power tilt (mercury I believe), and even the hollow tilt rods that accept push-pull steering cables. I believe they are primarily marketed for lake fishing, slow trolling market. Of course these would be much harder to come by. I think an easier approach would be fix mounting it on a vertical track on the back of the boat. Raise and lower it with block and tackle. A larger outboard would be just more weight and grossly exceed the size of the electric motor a 8kw generator would support.
