Default tabs

Hi everyone been lurking around this site for a few months,lots of great stuff

Can't afford to upgrade my ride this year like I wanted...I have a 22 stingray w/350 mag/ bravo 1/runs in mid 60s...sluggish getting on plane when have more than 2 people in it..but other than that runs great for a small block

Would trim tabs help?? if so hydraulic or electric??
electric look easy to install, would I need heavy duty/racing tabs for this boat or can get away with cheaper ones??

any input would be great, season starting soon

thanks, Mike

trim tab my help but before I did that I would play with the prop, sounds like your is set up more for top end rather than"out of the hole"

keep in mind that what you gain in bottom end you basicly loose in top end

Thanks for input, have 21ss laser, can't remember the pitch,
seems fine getting out of the hole unless i have people in the back seat, would the tabs help or should i change props, or maybe just no more than 1 passenger Don't want to lose any topend

If you decide to go with tabs I'd use a set of Lenco's on your boat
