How many switches

I am currently fitting out a Marlin 36 with twin Yammy F250, and I'm looking for some inspiration, each engine is fitted with trim/tilt (2 buttons) each engine is on Hydraulic jacks (4 buttons) the boat has trim tabs (6 buttons). All of which need to be maintained whilst underway.

Has anyone any thoughts about trying to twin (with relays) the engine jacks so only one button is required for two jacks, the same with the trim/tilt.

I can't beleive Im the only fumble thumb with a console resembling a church organ.

Just to prove a point, I have attached pics of the (before fiddling with the controls) and the (After fiddling with the controls) it was a long row home with my wife yelling "fumb duck". Oh Happy days !!!!!!. Any guidance gentleman would be greatly received.

A double pole switch will do that job.

I'd have thought the chances of two lifters moving at the same rate is unlikley. Easy to check it out now and time each one & check position before giving up the ablity to correct any imbalance

I would agree with that but is it possible to 'tune' one or both so that they do move at the same rate?
