Don't want to go into details here, but dealing with it should fix any trim problems I have had
Really looking forward to the next outing
Let me guess.

The rod at the bottom of the trim bracket was set to far out meaning you could not trim in all the way

I have mine set on the No.1 hole that allows the engine to trim in all the way. Although dont be fooled it is not the hole closest to the transom but the one above it.

We had to check the transducer a couple of months back, and it was really dry in the void, so the hatch/deckplate did the job very well.
I found the name of the manufacturer of these hatches the other day. It's Bailey Marine.
