Default Re: Trim Tab Installation Question

Here is the finished tab job. Very pleased with the placement. Bennett recommends as far outboard as possible but with at least 3" to the chine, which I was able to do. I wanted to follow the contour from chine to chine but this works better as I am still able to use my trailer straps without manipulation.

Each screw tightened as if screwed in stone. Very pleased with how strong they seem.





I could have centered this controls but the helm wire harness runs just above this.



Nice that Maxum left an open aux terminal. I simply crimped on the connector that Maxum left there, replaced the fuse with a 20 amp and plugged it in (bottom right corner)! Couldn't have been any more simple. Fun project!



The hydraulic pump nestled in with the outdrive hydraulic pump. It's tight but it works. The trick I used was actually removing the wood 'wall', installed the bracket, reinstalled the wall and slide the pump unit into the bracket.

Thanks for the photos R2C, well done and looks good.

Just seems there is a lot of pressure on the tabs while under way so I'm always surprised to see that the tabs and actuators are only secured with screws, opposed to nuts-n-bolts. Of course, I also tend to over analyze, and then over engineer, things.

Installing tabs will be a winter, or spring, project for me. A little concerned about placement because, like yours, I'm worried that the trailer straps will want to occupy the same space on the transom that the tabs do. Won't know until I eyeball it though.

Thanks again for the write-up and photos.

Regards,

Dan

LOL!! I'm laughing because I KNEW you were going to spot that and tell me to paint or seal it!! Too funny!! That was where Maxum had a clamp that secured the fuel hose to the bhd. They screwed it at a bad angle into a knot and as soon as I unscrewed it, the knot fell out. There are two other clamps so I left that one off. I will definitely paint it.
