Hi, that is impossible to answer without knowing what hull you are looking at. Some hulls definately need trim tbas while others do not. That said all hulls can benefit from trim tabs when correctly fitted in some water and load conditions. I have seen trim tabs fitted to boats incorrectly and they make the boat dangerous.

Cheers,

Huey.

I have owned 4 boats and my most recent 6.5 meter half cab has them fitted. Personally I find them an excellent feature. It seems if you have a high profile boat with cabin that can get pushed in a wind or in certain sea conditions the ability to be able to level the boat is fantastic. I was given some instruction on how to use them when I brought the boat and had the first ride. I would get them again on a similar size or larger boat in the future.

I also spoke to a person from Barcrusher at the boat show. He very knowledgeable and helpful. His advice was for trim tabs over 6m.

Cheers
