No doubt ! These are NOT K-planes...No comparison
But....For what you are doing they should be fine.
The indicators are junk !! Save your money !!

I had a 24 Lib with twinns for years,It rode on the tabs all the time, Bent a couple ,broke 1 pump {cheap} broke one Cyl. Not bad for what i put them through !

Martini, what kind of update are you making for the kPlane?
I'm building a polished Victory stainless steel version to replace the K's. It's very trick!

I'll throw in a plug for Lenco's customer service too. I have a Lenco engine hatch actuater. The plastic mounting piece broke (my fault). I sent it to them and they refurbished the whole unit for a little more than the cost of shipping. Quick turn around time too.

Martini, i read about your upgrade tabs for the bennet but i havent heard of anyone that has them in their boat yet, i think i might want them but need some feedback from someone.
Thanks

migara422- Sorry for the late response on this thread, I think my spam blocker 'tackled' the OSO notification, not sure.

Just go to my latest e-bay auction for Victory tabs(search for same), I've included some customer testimonials. If you want to actually speak with someone who owns them, no problem at all, just give me a call and I can set you up with several satisfied customers. I guarantee your 100% satisfaction with my products or your money back! I'm dedicated to producing cool and unique marine pieces at reasonable prices.

Sincerely,
Brian Kamrath
