Today’s boat trim tabs are designed to accommodate your boat’s propulsion system and take the guesswork out of trim tab setup. When deciding on a system, always follow the instructions and recommendations of the boat and trim tab manufacturer.
Boat trim tabs solve many problems:
Improve poor visibility - trim tabs help keep your boat on plane (or bow down) so you can see where you’re going at slower speeds.
Handle rough water - trim tabs can keep your boat on plane when wind and waves force the bow up.
Eliminate porpoising - with aging, a boat’s hull develops a “hook” which prevents the boat from staying on top of the water, e.g. planing. Trim tabs help the boat from bouncing, by adding the needed extra down force.
Improve difficult steering - trim tabs can help overcome the imbalance caused by powerful motors. Uneven propeller torque often causes the hull to ride higher, putting the boat into a perpetual bank. Trim tabs help level the boat so it can stay on course.
Correct uneven weight distribution - trim tabs improve how your boat handles and minimizes listing to port or starboard due to extremes in passenger load, fuel and/or gear on board.
Extend engine life and minimize fuel costs - trim tabs help maintain efficient planing, lessening engine strain. You save on fuel with less strain on the engine.
