Default WTF? Quote from Boat U.S. Trailering Mag

This quote is from this months Boat U.S. Trailering Magazine talking about trim tabs.

"performance boats (also called Cigarette boats as well as a variety of colorful adjectives) require sport tabs."

Do other boaters really have issues with "Performance boats"? Except for the noise, I don't feel I give other boaters reason for any negative thoughts.

I think the "other colorful adjectives" would have to be a slam. What is a sport tab?

Boat U.S. claims to be looking out for the better interests of ALL boaters. I would have to say that the majority of Performance boats are trailered.
