Do you remember about how thick the fiberglass was where you mounted your trim tabs ? Any wood behind it ?
Yamaha new hulls are all FRP, zero wood, about 1/4" thick... Including transom.

Thanks swatski, do you ever worry about the strength of the 1/4” fiberglass-plastic and all the force put on the tabs ?, I think I worry too much. I’m not liking this getting old stuff.

Yamaha FRP is hard and durable, albeit when it breaks, it's like an egg shell... not pretty.
I had some concerns/doubts initially but have now been running with my large tabs for almost two years, including the 2017 Bimini run in very rough water, with not issues what-so-ever.

and I love the fact there is no wood in these boats anymore! With nothing to rot.

Foobar..thanks for your videos. Very helpful.
I've only had my 210 fsh for a week and used it twice but think trim tabs would be a great addition as I am pulling kiddos in tubes wake boards etc. and I would like some assistance on planning.
Would you mind sending me your lectrotab set up as well? Or would you recommend just calling them?
Thanks

I sent you a copy of my invoice. I suggest calling and speaking to Russ.

@Foobar, was going to install my Raymarine Dragonfly transducer prior to the trim tab install. Primarily, because the tabs haven’t been delivered yet and I’m desperate in miserable Missouri to do anything. However, don’t see much room down there with the trim tab placement. Any ideas?

Search the forums. Most guys have it more near the center anyway. There is room. I went with a transducer you mount through the hull. (Round hole.)
