Sorry about quality, it was starting to go dark

Thanks for that. I took 9D280's tip and used crossed straps (ie from each external D ring diagonally across and down to the opposite trailer beam). I had to buy new straps but it works well.

Which ones did you get?
Do they actually stop your boat chine walking & what if any other benefits have they shown?
I bought the Smart Tabs SX (from the website, cheaper than UK supplier). I haven't done full "with and without" trials yet but they've certainly reduced minimum planing speed. Now ~10kts whereas more like 15kts before. I never had a problem with chine walking but the instructions do say that can be eliminated. Improved top speed is also claimed but I haven't confirmed that either.

I also bought the PR500 retractor kit (allows the tabs to be raised manually) but I couldn't fit them because they interfered with the auxiliary bracket on the transom. If you go ahead with Smart Tabs and wanted to fit these as well, let me know.
