Another Convert to Smart Tabs

Having added 8 1/2 stone of diesel auxiliary to the ar*e end ,I found the Bow needed to be trimmed down (to the limit of power trim when only 1 on board)
Smart Tabs work perfectly ... handling improved ... planes at lower speed ... top speed up

Simple to install (about an hour)
at the moment 10/10

No, it certainly isn't!

Always use velcro to attach the engine.

your are talking about 8 * 5mm diameter self -tapping 20mm screws for each plate + 2 for the activator holder. Dont.know about Dicky's-B transom but mine is at least 350mm thick. If it can stand up to my appallinng sea manship and 420 kgs of engine- I can aassure you the transom can take it.
My boat is out on the trailer next week and will post some pics of the tabs.
If you cannot get a decent trim then go tabs and go Nauticus. Very serious people.

The effect is satrtling - you push the throttle foreward the bow comes up and you then see it coming down.

Richard - many thanks - but my concern is that somebody - lets say that
mind of info from wales might take you seriousely.....
I once told somebody - that they would die in 6 months .. low and behold he did....
Dicky, the irony of the fact is when do you take people seriousely on this site???
In Belgium I have to be extemely careful of what I say- either I am too direct and it upsets a lot of people - or I crack a typical english joke and they havnt a clue....

sincerely
jonathan

Well doesn't everyone use velcro - it does have lots of uses......

By the way - are you sure it is Belgium you live in and not one of it's former colonies - like the Congo???
