Product Description
Enjoy better operating speeds, improved visibility, and greater stability with the economical Nauticus Smart Tabs SX Series. The one-of-a-kind Smart Tabs system is speed-regulated, requiring no operator adjustment while underway. The system uses a nitrogen gas actuator which stabilizes your boat without the use of hydraulics or electric switches. The amount of "lift" provided by the actuator is determined by the load rating and trim plate adjustment done at the time of installation. The system can be specifically tuned to maximize the performance of any power boat, and tracking ribs have been added to improve handling at higher speeds. Smart Tabs can be assembled in seconds and installed in minutes - the only tools required are a drill with a 3/16" bit and a Phillips screwdriver. Molded composite construction offers rust-free, corrosion-free protection. With smoother, faster acceleration, 40% less bow rise, and a 35% lower plane speed, Smart Tabs SX are the ultimate trim tab system for skiing and tubing.

I bought these tabs for my 22 foot Maxum and installed them myself in about 45 minutes. They are awesome. Keeps the front end down and perfect hole shot. I HIGHLY recommend these to anyone. They work 10X better than Stingray Hydrofoil that installs to the stern. Keeps the boat level even in rough water. I sound like I work for this company but I'm just that satisfied with their product.

    This product completely changed the feel of my boat
    The bow rise is almost nothing now and it just jumps out of the water
    Even with a smaller engine they made a huge difference pulling a skier

                Comments about Nauticus SMART TABS SX Series, SX9510-80:

                I just installed these this weekend. It took less than an hour. The boat gets on plane alot quicker and is running more stable in the corners. I haven't tested top speed yet, but look forward to making some adjustments and getting the most out of them. Easy installation, good strong hardware. I added some marine silicone in each hole and felt good about the install. Removed my old faded and knicked Stingray foil and gave it to a neighbor with a smaller boat. I checked the Nauticus web-site and they have all the componants/replacement parts if anything were to break. Every boat needs these tabs if they are not factory installed. They look like performance/race stuff, so that is a plus too. GPC Charleston, SC

                    I really do not have an answer for that. I apologize, but I do not know what type of boat you have, the size or length of the ladder or, precisely where you are mounting these. I apologize for that but, if you have any further questions, please call 1-888-683-7866.

                    A:

                    As long as they are sized correctly for your boat they will improve performance on any boat. Not just a Mastercraft or Correct Craft brand boat.

                    When you purchase the Nauticus Smart Tabs you are purchasing a complete Self Adjusting Trim and Stabilizer System. The package comes complete with two tabs and two nitrogen gas actuators which stabilizes your boat without the use of hydraulics or electric switches.
