Finally got some pictures of the boat and cruising and wanted to share!

Launched in St. Petersburg, FL and cruised cross Tampa Bay and encountered our first waterspout! Didn't really get a good picture, because I really didn't want to stop and stare! Finally met our friends and their 8 month old Lab at E.G. Simmons Park in Ruskin, FL, and from there headed north in the bay towards Alafia River in Gibsonton. Cruised through many marinas and boat ramps to finally arrive at our destination of "Diddy" Springs. Got out of the Trophy for a nice walk up to the spring waters and let the puppy swim! Stopped at the Beer Shed in Riverview, and got some really good food.
Loaded everyone up and headed back at dark to avoid the earlier water troubles and then finally got here on the trailer and back home in St. Pete!

Awesome cruise overall, except my trim/tilt issue, but other than that cruised around 60 miles.
(2 to 3' w/ moderate chop)

Didn't really run it this weekend with the Trim Tabs, but did at least run a sea trial. Did everything everyone said they would do.

Jumped on plane faster.
Stayed on plane at a lower speed.
Gained almost 2 mph more on my "cruise" rpm of 3500.
Overall great performance.

Thanks everyone who helped with my technical issue!

Brett

Definitely would recommend them to a friend!

Nice pics Brett. I'll be the next one reporting on the tab performance. Maybe this weekend if the weather improves.

Wow,

Sorry you had to hear through my experiences, but they work just like advertised!

I run mine on position #2 now, because #3 took a little of my top end off, but the boat handles like a dream!

Let me know how your experience is!
