What I once did with a 21’ Maxum was to jack up the trailer and boat together then block the boat and lower the trailer. I felt that it was just easier to jack on the trailer box frame.

Not sure, but Latham might have some information. Perhaps you could reach out to them and get their opinion. 2500 lbs is a lifting limit, they might have limits on side loading?

I have never used sealer on gaskets. Only exception was a raw water pump where the mechanic messed up the surface with screwdrivers as he tried to remove the old impeller, I fired that mechanic.

I let my wife pick our current boat, a 36’ Sabre...she made an excellent choice. Planing hull, simple straight inboard diesels comfortable and you could fish it and it has a 20 knot cruise speed.

Another idea would be to run a bead of silicone on the back of the panel, but wait and let it set up before screwing it in place, this will help stop vibrating.

Then after installation you could...

K.I.S.S.

To me that means straight inboards with prop pockets. Low maintenance and easy to work on. On my Sabre I can do engine work while out of the weather even have A/C if I want.
