Not to press the issue but actually Jwalker has trim tabs and his boat is:
Length: 8m +
Engine: Volvo KAD300/DPX
Also Brian posted above:
Make: Scorpion Sports Crui
Length: 9m +
Engine: Ib/d Yanmar 300hp-di
I'm running an Avon Searider SR4 which is about as deep a hull as any other just length challenged.
I'm not trying to drive a point or an agenda but am curious why they aren't as popular for UK ribbers as I've noticed a significant jump in seaworthyness even with my automatic trim tabs.
I would really love to see what Jwalker has to say about trim tabs.
