Boating Tips Episode 32: Boat Trim Tabs Explained

In this episode of Boating Tips, Captain Keith discusses the benefits of trim tabs and how they work. Click Here to Find Your Boat: https://www.marinemax.com/find-a-boat Boats with outboard engines will often have trim tabs attached to the lower unit of the engine. These are used to adjust the pitch attitude of the boat while underway. Changes in boat speed or weight placement will usually require the trim tabs to be adjusted to keep the boat at a comfortable and efficient pitch attitude. This reduces the work of the engine by reducing the amount of manual control necessary, as well as providing for greater efficiency by keeping the ship in the ideal orientation for the conditions.
