I've got an outboard that is hard to tilt all the way up and out of the water.

Although the motor mount has a retractable bracket, the combination of design, placement and difficulty to get to make that not a practical option so I want to pull the motor out of the water when I'm ready to sail by tilting it all the way up.

The angle of my reach and the weight of the motor make this a difficult job, and also makes it more likely I'll lose my grip and it will bang down when I'm lowering it, possibly damaging the transom.

Any solutions to this? I was thinking about possibly attaching a line to the back handle on the outboard and rigging up some kind of way to crank it up through a block but this is not well developed idea so far.

Grateful for any suggestions of advice.
