Lenco Trim Tabs

Hi,

I'm looking to fit Lenco trim tabs on the RIB, but I'm struggling to find anywhere that sells them in the UK - Bainbridge Marine no longer list them on their website at all.

I've done a search and a few of you have said that you sourced the tabs from the US - would anyone be able to recommend a supplier over there that will ship to the UK?

Ta!!

DGR...

I was using a new pair last week - dunno where they came from - not the USA!

Bainbridge Marine > Standard Trim-Tab Kits

How weird is that - I clicked through to Bainbridge Marine from the Lenco website, and they didn't list Lenco anywhere - must be an old site or something.

Anyway - thanks for the link willk!!

Cheers,

D...

I think that's what's happened - the site looks quite different.

I'm now wondering about Lenco vs Bennet.........

Bennet are actually cheaper, and I think I've got room in the engine box to fit the gubbins...

Ah - decisions decisions......

Lenco are very quick acting, and on a rib the lower weight is always a plus. Quick tip: use ATF rather than the stuff they come with if you go for Bennett's. According to a number of people on here it really speeds up their movement
