    Default Trim Tabs on a cat?

    Hey i was just wondering if you can out trim tabs on a cat (pro boat mystic).
    Will doing this help the handling of the boat? Or not really help at all?
    Any help would be great!
    Thanks

    it probably would help, tho you could try adjusting the propeller strut. I found that if you adjust the strut down, it makes the boat porpoise more; but if you adjust it up, as awkward as it sounds it does in fact make the boat ride flat.
    I've installed a secondary rudder, using it as a trim tab, and a 2nd water pickup. she dances on the water. its really cool.

    Trim tabs on a cat is trying to help a bad setup. Adjust COG, strut etc first.

    Four-month-old thread, I'd assume that he's well past the issue.

    Bringing the thread back...
    So I assume that tabs only help during the planing time but also a little "bounciness"?
    I have a 32" Rivercat but I run in the choppy waters so I can't really get on it or it gets in the air...
    Would a led weight help up front?
    Why are you bothering me? I want to see your boat!
