Includes two actuators sealed in EDPM rubber boots, two polished stainless steel plates, instructions and templates. Five-year metal and two-year actuator warranty.

      Comments about Smart Tabs Automatic Trim Tab System:

      I have a 21' boat where the back angles to support swim deck. West Marine sales people put me in touch with manufacturer's engineer who determined the best size for the style boat. The tabs have made the boating so much more enjoyable.
