It's in your manual - Bennett trim tabs. They are hydraulic actuators so that's the fluid you are seeing.

FYI - I deleted your other 2 posts. Just post in one place as most everyone checks all the different forums.

i need to order new acuators

Since you broke the actuator to the point of leaking fluid, I'm not sure how you'd be able to take it on the water until you get it fixed. You will be able to order just the actuators and plate without all the internals.

Just call Bennett in the morning. They will be able to tell you all the parts you need and can probably overnight the parts as well if you're in a hurry.

they have good website too that you can check out tonight that has a tech help area with videos that might help prepare you for what you're going to need to do to get back on the water.
