Outboard lifting is killing me!

I knew a sailor who drilled two holes in his motor mount and hooked the ends of an appropriately sized spring through the holes. The length of the spring was such that it was not completely relaxed, even when the motor was fully raised. The additional spring power helped lift the motor.
