I had something which could be similar last week on my df200. It seemed like the leg was falling faster than the ram wanted to go and it kind of bounced a bit as it went down. A bit like kangarooing a car when you're learning to drive!

No idea as I haven't been out in the boat since. If it happens again I'll give my dealer a call. He may know.
