Improved Performance for Towing Skiers, Tubes, or Boards. Cut bow rise 50%, get faster and smoother acceleration, tow anything with ease, and run at top speeds without porpoising. Smart Tabs provide unparalleled performance, stability, and economy.

For Cruising or Fishing also enjoy better handling, and a smoother ride in rough water. With no electric or hydraulic connections Smart Tabs continuously adjust to the water conditions like shock absorbers. The stainless steel plates are held down by nitrogen gas actuators and automatically rotate up during acceleration. Easily installed on any wood, aluminum or fiber glass transom in less than an hour, with all mounting hardware and sealant materials provided. Includes two actuators sealed in EDPM rubber boots, two polished stainless steel plates, instructions and templates. Five-year metal and two-year actuator warranty.

SMART TABS are completely automatic requiring no operator adjustment while underway.

The nitrogen Gas Actuator provides LIFT at the stern of the boat by holding the trim plate down during acceleration. The amount of LIFT is determined by the actuator load rating and the trim plate adjustment, which is done at the time of installation.

SMART TABS start in a downward angel to maximize lift at slow speeds. As the boat accelerates, the water pushes up on the trim plates providing lift to the stern which minimizes bow rise, and allows the boat to plane quickly.

Once the water pressure exceeds the actuator load rating (maximum lift) the trim plates move up to a horizontal position eliminating any drag.

Even when cruising SMART TABS continue to work like shock absorbers. The constant adjustment to sea conditions allow SMART TABS to provide remarkable stability in turns, while crossing waves, while cruising, and while running at maximum speeds. No more sliding, porpoising, or chine walking.

The unique system is the only one of its kind in the industry. The internal valve system is truly "smart" in its design of controlling your boats performance.

  • It will reduce the minimum planing speed by 33%
  • Provide a level, more comfortable ride at lower speeds
  • Improve economy, handling and safety
As the boat speed increases, the water pressure also increases. Once the water pressure exceeds the Actuator load rating (maximum LIFT period) the trim plates begin to move upward until they are horizontal with the bottom of the boat. The internal valve system dampens the trim plate movement wich eliminates any instant reaction to minor water pressure variances. SMART TABS provide smooth and undetectable reaction to boat speed creating a level, more comfortable ride at lower speeds.

With an electric drill, two drill bits (1/8" and 3/16"), a phillips screwdriver, and two wrenches, just about anyone can install SMART TABS in less than an hour. Professional installers should be able to install SMART TABS in 30 minutes or less.

Money Back Performance Guarantee

If the deficiency can not be resolved to the original purchaser's satisfaction, a Return Authorization Number will be issued.
