Trim Tabs

Well with the boat out of the water I got a good look at the tabs. They are in good shape for a 1973 boat but after measuring it is clear why they do not level the boat off the way I expected. I have a 32' boat with 24x 9" tabs. Looking at all the guides at a minimum these should be 24 x 12&quo...

Re: Looking for a GOOD winlass

Are you still looking?

I have a spare that came off my 37' I am willing to sell.

Worked fine when I took it off, I have the controls as well but not the full harness.

Re: Trim Tabs

Boat was pulled Friday so I will get down there next weekend to test the tabs and decide what to do.

The low cost approach will be make sure everything is working and then extend the tabs out with a piece of SS bolted to the bottom of the current ones.

Re: Trim Tabs

Interesting looks like $3000 or so for my boat.

I can put a new pump on and extend the tabs for $400 lol

Re: Raw Water Intake

There are so many holes in my hull I would be surprised if you need to add a new one. 2 Motor intakes 1 Gen intake 1 Washdown intake 1 AC system intake 1 Head intake If you have it out of the water take a good look a round and make sure you can identify what each of the holes you already have do. Lo...

Re: Trim Tabs

I am debating replacing the in boat system as well I have found one of issues over time is they leak hydro fluid and stop working. This may be the issue I am having not sure yet. Has anyone tried the electric versions Bennett has a version but my 32' may be to big for them https://bennetttrimtabs.co...

Trim Tabs

Took my first long ride in the new boat. At slow speeds say trolling I can drive from lower station but once I get some speed on the bow is so far up it is hard to see. Trim Tabs brought it down a little but not enough. Will be pulling the boat out for the winter this week so no hurry to address but...

I took 70 Gal of gas to fill her back up. I was running around 13-14 MPH slower coming out of the marina an...

Re: 1966 26' Express Chevrolet 350 Conversion

Interesting I can not find a OMC model A 990336 D I can fine parts for the A version.

I would say contact a OMC shop that provides parts for old motors and have them research it for you
