Just for the shear entertainment value that this thread had provided to our team, I would like to donate a supply of our hand cleaner (www.zolex-handcleaner.com) for the refit process because you guys are going to be making a heck of a mess.

Knowing what those motors went thru, I am surprised they are holding out as good as they are...

The prop is trying to push that motor up and out of the water. Only thing keeping it down is the tilt/trim mechanism. Any fluid leak and while underway it tries to raise up....

Yeah that doesn't make sense. The prop is pushing down(ish).

Looks like both motors are trimmed up a bit.
I would think they have done that to get some reverse out of them. If they where trimmed all the way down, the prop wash would hit the transom of the boat. Not much reverse thrust there.
As for one being higher? Looks like it's at the top of the "trim" portion.
I would also imaging that after the sinking, not all of the electrics are functioning on the engine. They don't really need trim/tilt, so they left it alone.
Just my 2c.
