A way of doing it "in the field" as it were.
It's a way we used to alter engine height once boats had been fully offloaded and sent off for other "jobs".
The engine can be "walked" up the transom by undoing one side whilst braced from underneath with a stout support. The other side should now be left with one bolt only, loosened.
You now swing the engine up to meet the next hole and insert bolt. Assuming enough give in transom holes to accept this method.
Now remove the pivot bolt and raise that side.
Needs a few hands but very do-able.
Chock and brake the trailer mind.

Used this method to alter 3 tonne trailer nose height without unhitching when on a steep incline to clear crests. It's surprisingly effective. Esp if you prepare the available mounting hole for this action beforehand. Only the receiving ( the hole after the first swing ) needs prepping, if at all.
