Help Me Find Outboard Pwr Trim Actuator - Or Something Close?

Can anyone help me find a replacement or a source for this elusive power/trim actuator unit that won't break the bank (looking in the $100-$200 range for a new unit or less for a used one? The one I have is binding on the way "up" and has clearly seen better days. Local shop says can't repair economically. Current application is for a Avon 3.4 RIB with a Yamaha 25HP 4-Stroke (yr 2000) mounted on an aftermarket tilt/trim hinged plate that looks like a Panther design. Markings on the jack-plate hardware are illegible. The markings on the actuator itself are incomplete but I can make out "CIM" and "Made in China" (which doesn't excite me). The "closed" pin to pin measurement is 9 inches. Fully extended is 13 inches. I have scoured Yamaha and other OEM sites with no luck and have also looked at replacement actuators but having trouble finding any that are salt water deployable with dynamic load able to handle trim needs at planing speed. The Yamaha 25 HP weighs around 160lbs. Would appreciate any suggestions/recommendations.
