It might help if you said what kind of boat it was... since someone who owns that boat may have done something similar. The problem is that the trim tab linkage has to deal with both the pivot and the shifting of the trim tab's physical location when the rudder kicks up. Do you have a photo of the rudder setup??

You know what the first rule of sailing is? ...Love. You can learn all the math in the 'verse, but you take
a boat to the sea you don't love, she'll shake you off just as sure as the turning of the worlds. Love keeps
her going when she oughta fall down, tells you she's hurting 'fore she keens. Makes her a home.
