I've just fitted the bennett sports tabs on the boat. Will be out tomorrow and will let you know what the difference in handling is like......or not

Well, tried out the boat yesterday using the Bennet sport tabs in a nasty SE chop and I have to say I am well impressed. The boat now comes off a wave flat instead of heading for the moon. I even took out the circa 70kg of chain ballast from the bow locker beforehand, so any difference in handling would be obvious........well it was!!

On full tabs I've a feeling I can turn the Rib into a Submarine. hows that for a trick

Other than the bit of anchor chain and anchor in the locker, I'm going to play with the tabs in bigger head sea's and see how we get on. PH Marine supplied the product with a good deal.

regards

Jon

Do you adjust them manually in the water or what? I'm considering them for the boat

Yes , Fully hydraulic. Have a gauge on the dash giving the relative position of each tab.

Hey corker, I meant the smart tabs. How much were the adjustable ones you have?
