  • 260 Mako-Trim Tabs

    260 Mako trim tabs-does anyone know what size trim tabs were standard on a 1990 Mako 260? looking at purchasing a boat which both tabs are missing. these are the recessed type, wondering if parts are still available.

    complete replacements are available, but if your 90' was like my 241 the factory tabs were made by televator no longer in business. But Tom McGowan I think his name is? At bennett marine he can have the exact size you need with actuators and everything else needed. If you can't get exact specs for the ones on that boat, can just measure the pocket size they need to fit in, and they can have the perfect size delivered to you.

      I have a 94 Mako 221B and recently ordered a new set of stainless tabs from Bennett because my old ones were eaten up from electrolysis. Tom (Tabman) was so helpful getting me the original part numbers (TPAMAK1012P & TPAMAK1012S) and assisted me with ordering them from Bennett through West Marine. Unfortunately Tom passed away recently but someone else there will hopefully be able to assist you...but I can promise they will not nearly be as helpful/knowledgeable as Tabman was.

        Back in early 2018 i spoke to Bennett replacing my factory tabs on my 1991 261.

        I spoke with Kyle at Bennett and was told that my tabs were 10x12 size specifically made for Mako. They could replace them (make them) and the part numbers were:

        TPAMKA1012P

        TPAMAK1012S

        The tabs retailed for $213 each side (!!)

        I'm not sure if you have the same recessed tabs that I have, but I hope that helps. Bennett has awesome customer service - i have had the pleasure to speak with them several times.

        Good Luck!

          so sorry to hear about Tabman, never met him in person. But he helped me and the guys I work with at least 20 times. The first I remember was a 23 Sea craft project back in 88'. His customer support and knowledge was 2nd to none,can only hope the Bennett family can find someone to fill his shoes. Fair winds and following seas, RIP

                Hello my friends,

                Should I add zincs on my trim tabs? I'd like to know what others have done and how to apply on my 97 232. Looking forward to responses. Thanks
                Thanks, Mr. Happy
