Default Bolt rims Tabs Installed

I like to thank Tabman for his help on this forum and Bennet's outstanding customer service. The job was not bad for the regular handy man. The hardest part was building the courage to drill the first hole in the hull. Once I got my first hole drilled, it went rather easy. For anyone who is thinking about adding tabs, just make sure you use more than enough sealant. I ended using 4200 in case I ever have to remove the tabs or actuators. I was also able to trim down by swim platform to clear the actuator. Again, thanks for all the info on the forum & the great customer service from Bennet.

Default Tabs

Nice job, you are correct about Bennett and Tabman. They are great, I replaced my 20 yr old hydraulic Bennetts on my Regulator last year to the Bolts with Tabman's help. I had the control panel go bad on me while in Florida and he got me set up with parts from the factory so I was able to replace quickly and on my way.

I also had an issue with a pair of 20yr old hydraulic Bennett's on my bay boat this week, sent Tom/Tabman a note today to see what my issue might be, he responded quickly and I figured out my issue. Done.

I will never own another set of tabs other than Bennett.

I finally got a chance to test the boat with the tabs today. Man, what a difference. It feels like a different boat all together. I would never own another boat without tabs for sure. Even my wife mentioned the improvements in ride. All I can say is WOW what a difference.
