    Trim Tabs on 215 DB

    I was wondering if anyone has had any experience with Smart Tabs on a 215 DB. I just purchased a set of Nauticus SX smart tabs. I have not installed them yet, but I already see were they will be in the way if my transom straps. So I will have to move the mounts on my trailer.
    I was wondering if anyone has them on a DB and what I might expect for see. I got them cheap on FB marketplace for $50. Still in sealed package.

      Yes I did install but I have not gotten the boat on the water yet. I hope to this weekend. I will post my results once I test it out. The boat does well over all but it does have it's few quirks that needed to be addressed.

        I had same issue with my 185.....removed old bolts from trailer bunk support, and added thru bolts for the transom tie downs. They work great. Oat isn’t going anywhere and only about $5.00 and 5 mins to modify.....

          I mocked up the tabs by taping them to the transom in 2 different places. I sent pictures to Nauticus and they recommended I mount them so I don't have to move the straps.
