Default Trim Tabs

I Have Insta Trim Trim Tabs 12"x12" And Am Looking To Upgrade To A K-plane Style Tab. What Are Your Opinions On Tabs To Buy For A Boat With Twins 29' Footer? What Advantages Will It Make For Me ? How Big Of A Tab Should I Purchase? Do The Kits Come With Pumps And Indicators?

Insta-trim has a 12x16 tab available that uses your existing pump and cylinders.I just bought them for my 33' Outlaw.They are shaped like a K-plane,I wanted K-planes but didn't want to spend all that cheese.I paid 350 clams for them.

Call Trick Marine they can fix you up. If you run rough water tabs will help to smooth the boat out, help it flew level. I think the 280 size K plane would work for you.

I Called Insta Trim I Think I Spoke With Brian. 12x16 Was The Largest Tab They Can Make Me. I'm Thinking More Of 12x24 Or 12x28 With A Taper Of 4 Inches At The Tip. Plus When Leveling Out The Tab With The Hull Using A Straight Edge And Marking My Indicator Once I Make A Change In Tab Position And Recheck The Levelness To Hull(after Positioning Back To My Mark) It's Not In The Same Position And Not Level With The Hull Anymore. I Would Like To Have Something More Reliable (accurate). My Opinion Is That Insta Trim Is More For A Cruiser Than Performance Boat. Sorry But Thats My Opinion. The Pistons Are Always Leaking. I Replaced One Last Season And Now 2 More Are Leaking. Way Too Many Boats I See With These Tabs (insta Trim).
