Apparently Iboats WILL ship individual items if you contact them and ask nicely-but it takes a bit of sweet-talking. They thought that the shipping was excessively high until some of us pointed out to them that it's still a whole load cheaper to buy and ship than it is over here...

So where did the testing lead to?

What prop on a Tohatsu 50 ?

Trim tabs size and strut pressure?

hiya boatster and other sr4 hombres. i've just ordered the trim tabs and will post my results when i try them. so far though i was able to do 35mph @5900 rpm with about 140kgs/300lbs on board. i am curious though about whether or not these tabs are going to be a nuisance when launching and retrieving? have you had any problems? any tips?
thanks

If you're doing 5900 rpm you sound like you need to go up a prop pitch. What are you using?

i dunno. could even have have hit 6100rpm for a second or two.
maybe i need a 14pitch? also wondering where to attach the smart tabs so that they're not too much in the way. any photos to show where they should be mounted?

I keep meaning to take a pic of that flap and keep forgetting...Eventually I'll remember...
I've done a (crap) diagramme here for you.




Have a look on Iboats.com forums for searider or search boatsters posts on here-there's more pics of Smart Tabs on an SR4 there.
