Trim tabs live in salt water, so why not use stainless steel to manufacture all of the components - or at least those outboard of the transom?
Trim Master Marine is doing just that. The Largo, Fla., company has introduced its stainless steel Trim Master trim tabs. The actuators, brackets and trim plates are made of 316L stainless steel. The trim tabs are linked to two independent, scientifically designed hydraulic units attached to the transom, the company says. They have a high-quality motor and pump, specially designed water-resistant controls, integrated wiring and durable hydraulic cylinders, the company says. The trim tabs are available for single or twin inboard or outboard boats from 15 to 65 feet. Retail prices start at $1,990. The stainless-steel tabs are compatible with Trim Master's current plastic composite trim tab line, as well as competitive hydraulic systems.
