Default Finally my transom picture

After what seems like years my boat is finally getting it's re-rigging done. The stellings box is on, Dyno on, IMCO ext. steering arms and rams, GGB transom tip mufflers, 380s tabs, offshore water pickup and swim platform. Hopefully less than a month for a water test.

It had 280 tabs and they would act all or nothing. By the time they were down far enough to hit the water they were at a fairly steep angle and then would act too much and were very difficult to fine adjust over a very small range. I am hoping that with the 380 tabs that they are tapered and when they hit the water it will be with less angle and width and a little less effect and be more adjustable. For most of the time they will be run flat with the bottom just above the water to just 'extend' the running length of the boat in the rough water. The one is down in the picture just to see it's movement. Still have to get the indicator cables hooked up.
One project leads to 10 others, but it is getting close.

In the rough water it adds 2 feet to the length if needed.
