Bennett, a well-regarded manufacturer of hydraulic trim tabs, has recently introduced “passive” trim tabs that do not need power. These are available in six-inch width for boats 10 to 14’, and in 10-inch width for boats 14 to 20’. Using only unpowered hydraulic actuators of Bennett’s own design, these tabs will provide bow-down control at speed, at prices below $200, much less than their powered siblings.
