Get the most from your boat, no matter what the load, speed or sea conditions, with Bennett trim tabs.
Hydraulic trim tabs are known for power, precision and durability. Bennett Standard Trim Tabs fit boats from 15'-38' (larger sets available). Using the helm control, you can adjust the trim tabs individually or together to create the perfect cruising attitude. Increase speed, fuel economy, smooth a rough ride and get on plane faster. Precise adjustments to boat attitude are easy. Kits include:
- Two high-quality, 13-gauge, 304 stainless steel after-planes with strong nylon/composite actuators. No external hoses or wires to break
- Euro-style rocker switch control fits a standard 2 1/2" dia. hole
- Self-bleeding hydraulic power unit, color-coded wiring harness and mounting hardware
- Five-year warranty
When ordering, remember ''the wider the better.'' Measure the longest plane span possible between the outside edge of the transom and the centerline, and subtract 3" - 4'' for clearance on the outer edge and 8" - 12'' of clearance from centerline (to account for outboard or sterndrive). A good rule of thumb is: at least 1'' of width per boat foot.
