  • Trim Tabs

    Anyone have any experience to share with trim tabs made by or sold under the moniker of "boat leveler", or "insta-trim" ?

    Probably everybody here runs Bennetts or Lencos. I am a Lenco guy personally.

      Got this little puppy from them and it's a quality piece. Better than the bennett tab's controllers at a comparible price ($99). But, I have bennet tabs and love them.

        I have the Insta trim on my 22 Tiara Pursuit. They came with the boat and I am happy with their operation. Off the top of my head I don't remember the size. heres the site link if you need it

          The boat leveler tabs were made by Teleflex. They no longer make them but you can by replacement parts at

            Well I went & did it. I got cold feet and decided to not even fool around messing with the 12x8's. I was afraid the 12x8 tabs, which were marginal with the twins ON the transom, would be worse with the twins on the 30" bracket. SO... I ordered a complete set of 14x11 tabs.

            For two reasons, I decided to give the insta-trim tabs a go.

            1- Scuba Steves, in FLA, had a pretty decent price of $334 (including shipping) for the whole she-bang.

            AND 2- If I'd have looked closer a couple days ago, I'd have seen the 12x8 set I removed were insta trims. They appear to be the originals, and were in functionally good working order (other than being a tad smallish for the extra weight of the twins), when I removed both them AND the transom to add the bracket.

            PS... (Are you listening Redfisher?): If anyone is interested in the 12x8's (complete set-up, minus the hoses which I had tossed ages ago because of weathering cracks) let me know... Donate (say $25-$50 sound "ok"?) to the website, and pay the UPS charges and I'll ship them to you.[]
