Trim Tab Discussion...

Hi
Would having trim tabs down get you boat on the plane faster or would the added drag make things worse??

It ought to help you get on the plane but once you are, then level them out to reduce drag and also throttle back

Hi I tried the obvious last weekend and surprise surprise. tabs and legs down On the plane pretty fast. Tabs up legs back to "0" once on the plane. Much better than normal.
i also tried the Millers Eclipse 2 diesel additive. i'm not a believer but I have to admit I suspect there was an improvement in performance. Maybe fu fu dust with smoke and mirrors but whatever.....
