Trim Tabs and Power Trim are two accessories on power boats that are too often ignored or used incorrectly. They were designed to give you the ability to trim your boat when on plane at intermediate speeds to keep your planing angle more parallel to the water’s surface. Trimming eliminates the bow too low angle and the bow too high angle that you often see on the water—or experience yourself.
“Trimming Your Boat“ covers all three combinations of Trim Tabs and Power Trim:
- Outboards and Sterndrives over 20′ with Both Trim Tabs and Power Trim
- Outboards and Sterndrives under 20′ with only Power Trim
- Inboards with only Trim Tabs
Bow Too High
- Does your bow run so high that you must stand to see over the cabin?
- It is dangerous when your bow is so high that you can’t see where you are going.
- It wastes a tremendous amount of fuel and dollars.
- The boat doesn’t look right and it shows other boaters, that you haven’t learned to trim your boat yet.
- On small fast boats, the wind could flip you over.
Bow Too Low
- Does your bow bury itself like a diving submarine, when you go fast?
- You are soaking your passengers and boat unnecessarily.
- You are wasting fuel dollars pushing water in front of the boat.
- It makes steering more difficult.
- It looks bad and shows other boaters, you don’t know how to trim your boat.
