I have saved up enough money to buy some trim tabs for my boat. The boat had some Bennett Tabs that i trashed when I started the restore. I have run the boat for 2 without any tabs on it and I can't wait to drive it with some new Trick Marine Tabs. So, the question is what size and where would you mount them on the back of the boat?
Thanks 4 any help!
Here are some pic of my boat
I am no expert, but by the looks of your arneson steering ram you will have a major placement problem
On another note, i bought a single tunnel tab from Trick. He is the best to work worth and awesome on prices to boot.
Good luck, and great looking boat too

Fred at trick has some really nice units and set ups, best thing to do is give him a call and ask what is best for your set up !!!!!
Going to have to do some custom work on the steering arm mount. Fred is the only person that i would consider buying these from but I need to know if I want the 23' or 28' ???
Fred U ROCK!
I think the 23" would be enough.
I had 150s on my 24 pantera and liked them.
I guess you could always go bigger.
Here is what I pulled off merc racing site:
K-PLANES RECOMMENDATION CHART
Model Boat Length
150S (New) 21 ft. (6.4m) to 30 ft. (9.1m)
280S (New) 31 ft. (9.4m) to 40 ft. (12.2m)
380S (New) 31 ft. (9.4m) to 40 ft. (12.2m)
450S 40 ft. (12.2m) and longer
With great power, comes great responsibility.
I have 280's on my 24 Superboat. I would recommend a similar size.
The 23's would be plenty, but I have customers running 28" on similar boats. It'll boil down to personal preference.
The steering ram is a definate problem right now. As for mounting position, I'd look at some photos of 24 Superboats, 24 Panteras, 24 Monzas etc. No need to reinvent the wheel.

Can they be mounted closer to the drive or is it better out on the edge?
Should i try to get them mounted on the flat part or is it ok to mount them they are on Dave M's boat????
