Glad you like them Chuck!

The install concerns me however. When I designed the Victory tab I purposely moved the ram to tab mount back about 3/4" to make sure the extended length would fully retract. I've never experienced an installation with less than 1 1/2" total clearance measured from a straight edge along the bottom of the hull to the tip of the Victories'.

Let's see where the discrepancy is:

Take a measurement from the lower bolt centerline on the Bennett upper ram mount to the centerline of the Victory upper row of mounting holes. (hope that makes sense ) That measurement, if the Bennett template was used for the installation of your originals, should be approx. 8 1/4".(center to center on the boltheads) Also, take a measurement from the bottom of your boat hull to the bottom of the Victory tab measured right at the transom. That should be around 1/4"- 3/8".

We'll be in touch, thanks for now and enjoy!

Sincerely,
Brian Kamrath

I've currently been colour coating my tabs but I was wondering how many people would be interested in a polished pair of stainless tabs? Maybe something in a brushed stainless look or pewter?

Something else I was considering are the various electroplating processes out there.

BRIAN,
WILL IT BOLT TO THE SAME HOLES ON THE TRANSOM AS THE BENNETT TABS?

Yes, the Victory bolt pattern is an exact match to your existing Bennett pattern. I have all known Bennett bolt patterns at my disposal. 12-bolt (my own, actually just doubling up on the popular Bennett 6-bolt) 10-bolt, used with the Bennett ST16, and, the not-so-popular 9-bolt.

All Victory tabs come with new larger ss mounting hardware for additional strength and peace of mind. Gain new found hull performance at a fraction of the cost of K-planes.

Search in PARTS and ACCESSORIES under 'trim tabs' for more details or give me a call at the shop. I'm always available to talk boats and/or 'custom' projects you require.

Sincerely,
Brian Kamrath

You bet Fred!

What length are you looking for? What style was on that Sutphen, can't remember now.

Default SINGLE RAM VERSION SHOWN

Rag's, anyone who has installed a pair of 'Victorys' has realized a huge improvement in stability at higher speeds, reduced planing times (holeshot) and the ability to remain on plane at a lower speed...and...oh yeah, they look cool

Best bang for the buck, period.

Sincerely,

Default The welds

Actualy a stitched weld "like you have used" is stronger than a continuous bead .. Nice looking tabs , I might need a set to stop a poirposing problem ..
