Six of the Best ideas Ever.
Smart Tabs SX
Startingly simple, economical, automatic, non electric trim tabs that transform your boat.
For power dependant boaters like us, we naturally crave high performance. We want to know our boats are speedy, fuel efficient and easy to handle. So to keep us running at optimal levels at all times, we constantly play with the trim of the boat in the elusive search for that perfect balance. But with constantly changing sea states, this can become a bit of a bother...unless your tabs are automatic of coarse.
Just attach a pair of these new Smart FX Tabs to the back of your boat or rib (they suit both) and they will set about delivering a promise of 15% quicker acceleration, 50% less bow lift, 11% more fuel economy and 10% more speed.
Working by using the resistance of the water, and promising no maintanence, this product comes heavily endorsed by industry stalwarts including Mike Dowey at Mavern Marine. he wont let a boat under his care leave without a pair and confesses 'my boat is a completely different beast with them on'
Now also sold by Mavern Marine for £149.99 these tabs are a seriously good investment. In fact were so smitten, were giving a pair of tabs away for free as this months competion. See page 84 for details.
Now back to Warpa at the helm lol
if these things offer the mpg increase they claim, they would pay for themselves real quick
