Bigger tabs on my 466?
With the addition of the new dinghy I'm finding the boat just won't pull out of the water as it did.
There was a tab leak found over the winter (hopefully fixed). It's been recommended that I increase the size of the existing tabs from 26x12 to 26x18. I can't get any wider due to the prop pockets in the hull, do depth is all I have to work with.
I'm also thinking of changing from Bennett to Lectrotab. I called Carver and they recommended Lectrotab, and after a few hours on the phone with both, I prefer dealing with Lectrotab.
Bennett told me that I couldn't go more than 12" cord (the depth) unless I went with their SST ($6-$12k). Lectrotab told me to go with 2 of their HD actuators for each tab and just have my existing tabs extended (they could make me tabs but this was faster).
Any reason why I don't want to extend the chord (depth)? I'm not backing down on fish hard or anything, just trying to cruise.
