Default Anyone put trim tabs on an 1800mx?

I'm looking at the transom of the boat and I don't see much room to install the tabs. Does anyone have pics of trim tabs on a 1800mx or recommendations? It's either tabs or a hydrofoil that goes on the outdrive.

Thanks.

Smart Tabs are what I'm looking at but I'm just not sure if there's room on the transom. I know that they will interfere with the trailer tie-downs and I eventually want to extend the swim platform so I have to plan for that as well.

Maybe for this year I'll put on a hydrofoil and wait until the platform is done to go for the trim tabs.

Hi I am curious.
What problems are you having with your boat that you feel the need for trim tabs?
I have a friend with the same boat and he has not mentioned any problems. He has the 4.3lt.

It's not so much a problem I just want to get up on plane faster and hopefully be able to plane at lower speeds. Even my little 3.0L burns a bunch of fuel towing the tube at slow speeds for the younger kids.
