Default 2300 sc-1999

Anyone have any recommendations for trim tabs on the 2300 SC?

I am looking for something that's of solid quality and last.

Any pictures would be great.

The two major players are Bennett's and Lenco's. Both are solid and high quality. I chose Bennetts for my 2004 2400 SC3. Here's the link to my project:

Thats great info and very helpful.

You find the 12 x 12 are enough for your boat?

Yes, the 12X12's work just fine on our boat. Like I mentioned in my little write up, I walked around the storage lot of our marina with my tape measure looking at all the boats with tabs. Very few, regardless of size, had anything larger than 12X9's, and most of those boats were larger than our 2400. The choice was good - the 12X12 tabs do exactly what I wanted, and expected, them to do.

One quick comment; if you go with Bennetts double check how far of a reach it will be from inside the boat to the back transom where the top of the ram will mount. Mine was a LONG reach for my, apparently, short arms. Make certain you can get in there. Also, the transom is pretty thick and the 3" brass nipples for the hydraulic lines that came with the tabs were just barely long enough. I suggest you use 4" nipples.

Q's? Just ask.

Sounds like you are pretty happy with the 12x12.


I have a few friends who tell me its overkill for a boat of that size to have that long of tabs, but from your experience it seems like you are fairly happy.

If i don't go 12 x 12, i think the next size would be 12 x 9.

SP- does this system wire direct into an older system, vintage 1998?

O#7,

The only requirement for the system is 12V DC so it doesn't care what year the boat is.

I installed Bennett tabs on my 24' SC3 and could not be happier with how well they work and the difference they made in how the boat performs. I wrote up soem detail of my install and posted it in the "Projects" forum.

Feel free to ask any questions you like.

Dan

Thanks SS
I do have trim tabs, just curious about the auto tab conversion.
