Random Quote: If my hull is 25'6" and I have a bow pulpit and engine bracket, does that mean I have a 29 Abaco?
Boat runs fine now, but coud use a tad more bow down tab around 21 knots. Measured te trim tabs, and they only go down about 2 inches. I have read some luhrs and carolina classic guys adding a block extension to te tab to get it to drop farther. Anyone have a picture? I'm thinking a block of starboard that mount to the current tab holes on the back and then mounting the ram higher up on the block?
Oh, and like all my other boats, the bullet proof Bennett system! They work great, can level out fine, just could use a bit more bow tab down and can't go to a larger tab (unless I want t grind fiberglass which is a hell no)
