Default Trim Tabs

Has Anyone Seen Tabs Installed Like This Before. I Don't Think They Would Be Very Effective.

I did that on my little 19 footer because at speed it is riding on about the last two feet of bottom.

Saw them mounted flat but in that far on a 26 Velocity many years ago. The boat had big power and once up in the pad the rest of the boat is out of the water.

If you look closely, you can see the tabs are cut down considerably on the inner edge closest to the drive. I bet the drive swings both ways just fine...

...just like Craig. JC told me so.
