I have used them on my 4m rib with a 30hp yam with no power tilt

on my rib they lower my planing speed, useful for me on windermere where there is a speed limit.
on my boat they reduce bow rise, and the boat rises on to the plane quicker.
as others have said they have many disadvantages, I don't use them all the time
