Product Details

The Bennett BOLT Electric Trim Tab System for trailered boats includes all waterproof actuators, trim tabs, and harnesses needed to install this highly responsive system quickly to adjust your boat's trim for a smoother ride, increased visibility, and better fuel economy. Additional benefits include reduced pounding, reduced wake, reduced hull stress, and improved handling for added safety.

It's so simple and fast to install, that if you start in the morning, you can be out on the water before lunch. Bolt Trim Tab Systems are available in seven sizes. Refer to the Trim Tab Sizing Guide link to select the proper trim tab size for your boat.

Each BOLT trim tab system requires a BOLT Electric Helm Control Switch for fingertip helm control to adjust the port/starboard bow angle up and down. BOLT Switches are available in three models, and are sold separately.
