now you have them what benerfitts have they brought
I fitted Bennett trim tabs to a fast fishing boat .
I had an outboard engine but found the tabs were able to level up the vessel when the wind was blowing from either side and cross tides. made for a better trip.
But to get onto the plane i only ever used the tilt on the engine.
As I found the controlling both tabs at the same time were slower than the engine tilt.
However i have not fitted any to my rib.
