Linear Devices Corp. said its Lectrotab-brand trim-tab systems were selected by Aeon Marine and Beavertail Skiff as original equipment on their new boat models.

The Lectrotab systems include electromechanical actuators, aluminum alloy or stainless-steel tabs and a control. The actuator cylinder design incorporates patented features to ensure maximum performance and reliability.

The unit is corrosion-free, requires no maintenance, provides accurate tab positioning and maximum lift force and is self-contained for easy installation. The actuator assembly is packaged in a non-metallic, permanently sealed housing.

No components need to be installed inside the boat and, unlike hydraulic trim tabs, there is no oil to leak out.
