Depends on what you call force. You may have a cable that is having a problem, or, if not mistaken you have to press the brake pedal to go from park to gear change (safety item), and the detent to make it happen may be worn or damaged. If there is a problem with the shift cable, it may be a worn mount or strut that is preventing it from being aligned and binding in that manner.

Since the engine/transaxle and front suspension is all one basic unit, on a hill it would be tough if there was a strain rotating the engine/transaxle, and with a load on the rear, the front would shift, also, so look at brackets and connecting points between the shifter, body, and transaxle. You may have, as I said, a worn bushing, mount of some sort causing the distorion.

Do a little test before going to the boat dock. Hook up the trailer boat and pull it around the block, set the brake, put it in park, see if it does indeed shift easer after that. If it does, great, if not, linkage issues, figure out why the linkage is having problems.
