Heading offshore for a fishing trip is not as enjoyable when the ride is rough. My 2004 Palm Beach 235 takes me offshore fishing almost every weekend. I knew he needed to give the boat an upgrade to control bow height and porpoising. This was when I decided to install new trim tabs on my boat. I installed the BOLT Electric Trim Tab System, paired with the Integrated Helm control, giving my boat the upgrade needed for a smoother ride to himys offshore fishing spots in North Florida.

Spending his time fishing Northeast Florida Coast Line onboard his 16 Super Gheenoe. This small boat lets him get into all those good fishing spots and his trim tabs help him keep control of the boat. Clayton installed the tabs himself, and found it to be a “very good experience!

Father and I started this restoration almost 10 years ago, now – it’s finally nearing the finish line.” says Chris. “We have spared no expense and want only the finest products on the boat, hence, the Bennett tabs! We installed the trim tabs ourselves, and the experience was very smooth. The instructions were very clear! We did work with Thomas at Bennett to make sure we got the perfect set of trim tabs for the boat, which was exceptional, awesome customer service.

We use our boat for fishing and cruising around the Gold Coast. We install the trim tabs ourself and custom made the trim planes as large as we could to fit on our transom to give the best operation. The BOLT kits are AWESOME and simple to install.”

I have a 1995 28 foot Bayliner that has trim tabs with a Bennett v351 HPU. I have owned the boat since 2005 and haven’t done anything to the trim tab system. I haven’t even checked the fluid level! It had worked flawlessly until last week when it completely stopped working. I just removed the Hpu, and as I removed the cover, I was amazed the unit had been working because it was TOTALLY rusted and corroded. I then ordered the right HPU and quickly and easily replaced the unit. Once again, it works perfectly. This is a real tribute to the Bennett product.

I installed my SLT’s a few weeks ago and just got a chance to test them. Awesome! My G3 will be an entirely different boat when I go back to the Gulf in a couple of weeks! Great product. 👍
“Dad bought this boat when I was a kid and I hoped one day it would be mine. Now it is and after 24 years I’ve had to replace every system except one, the original Bennett Trim Tabs.”

“When I needed replacements for my Tiara, they suggested I call Bennett. Within 10 minutes my tabs were on the way and I was going about the rest of my day. Great customer service, thanks!

“My 1980 Crestliner has lived a good life. I completely restored it replacing nearly everything, except the Bennett Trim Tabs. I don’t believe there is anything more durable on a boat.”
“I’ve been fishing the Northeast for over 35 years. Every boat I’ve owned has had Bennett Trim Tabs. My last set lasted 17 years and was still working perfectly when I sold my boat.”
