Over 50 years ago, Charles Bennett invented the Trim Tab which changed recreational boating. Until that time, uneven weight distribution caused vessels to roll into a “squatting state” which made boats harder to handle and in extreme conditions, and could cause the boat to capsize.
Bennett Marine’s Trim Tabs are designed to adjust for changing conditions, provide lift, and can even increase fuel efficiency by 30%. This is how Trim Tabs work: As a boat slows from maximum speed, it begins to settle at the stern or ""squat,"" creating an inefficient, untrimmed condition. In this state more fuel is required to drive the boat. As the boat pushes forward, it creates a ""hill of water."" In this bow-high position, visibility is limited and the bottom of the hull is under great stress. The dramatic incline creates significant hull drag, an extreme prop angle, and reduces fuel economy.

The solution is Bennett Electric Trim Tabs. The tabs combine cutting-edge technology with robust and water-tight actuators. This superior technology resolves issues that older systems experience including breaking apart and water intrusion caused by design flaws and marine growth. Wholesale Marine recommends using hydraulic trim tabs for most applications that electric trim tab systems would be suitable for: Trailered boats 17-28 ft and single actuator use.
The system is watertight, and will not corrode. Wires are concealed and protected through the upper hinge, therefore there are no wires exposed to the marine environment. The durable water-tight black nylon actuator also provides trouble-free operation. The component’s main seal is located high to protect against marine growth and water intrusion failures.
Here are some benefits and features of Bennett Marine Trim Tab kits:
