Default Trim Tabs, what kind available?

I'm looking for a low cost trim tab for my 26' 4600lb boat. Only planning on keeping it another year or two. It only runs 58mph, so I don't think a higher priced performance tab is necessary. What size would work for me? What manufacturers? Electric vs Hydraulic? Thanks for your comments!!!

I would go for a set of Bennett ST-16s. I have them on my 26' Sonic, and they work great.

I have Bennets on my 22' Donzi. There is a chance i may upgrade, a decision that I'll make this summer. The Victory Tabs look very nice, but you only get the tab. It's kinda like a retrofit kit that assumes that you already have bennets, along with the pump, solenoids, rams, etc.....I'd go with the Bennet sport tabs in your situation.

Cap071, Thanks for the link, I think those are a bit overkill for what I need and I want to keep the bill down.

Finding a lot of options... Looking at the HD models by Lenko.

ECB...fire me over a PM. We are delaers for XS Performance Marine and they are now making trim tabs that should be available in the coming weeks. 2 polished stainless cylinders per tab, 1 pump per tab, 24" tab. Very nice set up, but very affordable. Also availabe are monster tabs for cats...at MUCH lower prices than competitors.

If you want me to work up a price for you, just let me know. Just giving you another option.

Thanks

Allan
