Default online course?

Is there an online course, or resource that would help a new to boating guy learn how to properly work the trim tabs, and engine trims.

There are plenty of videos on Youtube, but the best way to learn from my experience, is spend time at the helm with somebody knowledgeable there to assist.

I hired a guy locally who worked at a marina and was there leadman for all things at the dock. He carved out 2 hours of his time and we went out in my new boat and he really helped me out. Worth every penny, it was hands on and not centered around a bass boat.

I was in the same boat owner with his first boat. I played with the trim tabs and engine trim a bunch for the first few hours. Then I reached out to a few guys who had the same hull. They all confirmed what I found out....leave trim tabs up and engine trim down. Long story short, nothing beats just playing with them at various speeds in various conditions. You will find out what works for your boat.
