      I have found Bennetts online in Australia for $820 for the 12 x9 inch ones.I will fit them myself.I have been told Bennetts have better reaction time.
      The reason for putting them on is the boat sits low at the stern,as the older boats were not designed for the heavier 4 strokes, and it has been retro fitted with a 200 lt fuel tank,which is good, but heavy when full.

        Best thing I ever did to the 4.1

        I got the 40lb model and have it set at the least load, so possibly the 30lb would be better?
        The boat runs like a wild horse without them.

                  Would they make a noticeable difference on a 4.1 that already has a foil?

                  Would it be worth the money for the benefit received?

                    Doug did you drive your car into the bingo hall again?
                    I believe in Karma. That means I can do bad things to people all day long and I assume they deserve it.

                      Hi Slippery, the photo is very helpful, really appreciate it! Just one other question; what size/stroke motor is on the transom of your boat?

                        Flybug,

                        Glad it was some use to you.
                        50 4st.

                        I had one of the actuators fail after 5 years in the salt due to rust, so I had to decommission the other side untill the replacement arived. It really put me back to when I first ran this boat without them. I didn't know any better.

                        Very poor out of the hole, high planing speeds and porposed with any out ward trim.

                        I can trim it out to the max and with the new solas prop I get no cavitaion on high speed turns at full speed.

                        I would never like to do without them again. Especially out through the bar.

                          Hi Guys,

                          Just seeking an update on the trim tabs, its been a few years since this was posted. I have a 4.1sc 50hp Yamaha 2 stroke and always looking at ways improve it. Any one that has done it would you do it again or would you change something?
