    will trim tabs help my 15 foot boggy skiff from tilting side to side by weight distribution while running? or are they used just to get on a plain faster?

    Yes. And, Yes. Also help with porpoising and rough water.

  3. Check out Bennett's SLT manual tabs. Once you get the correct angle they work great and cost $150 a pair. Increased hole shot with minimal bow rise and while running there is no noticeable drag.
