Trim Tabs

Trim Tabs

5th May 2017

We fitted some Bennett M80 trim tabs to an aluminium kit boat this week. The boat was built with some design issues that made it a little hard to drive for the owner Des. The boat has a bad tendency to fall over to the left when underway and has a very nose up attitude that no amount of negative trim can solve.

These trim tabs should allow Des to correct the lean and adjust the ride to maximise comfort and fuel economy.

These trim tabs are a simple electronic/hydraulic set up that work on most boats from 15ft to 21ft. The kits are $890 and most simple installations are in the $360-$400 cost range. Sealed deck installations like the one we did for Des can cost a little more.
