Trim and lift are operated on the steering wheel, with 2 fingers on either side.
The prop is a Tempest Plus 23", labfinished by Mark Croxton USA.
(never used one) but quite a lot of movement there when the lifter is up and at WOT .. would have me a bit worried about transom loading, with all the vibration ? Wouldn't that cause some problems short to long terms ?

First of all, usual I don't drive the boat this hard. The movement is in the rubber absorption parts. The transom is 10 cm thick from half way down to the bottom.
I inspect the brackets, the power lift, transom, etc. every time I've used it and no problems whatsoever up to now after two years with the power lift mounted.
