Trimming - How does it work? By pressing a button, the trim tabs move because of the cylinders being adjusted in to the desired position. The water resistance on the downward sloping plates generates upward pressure while moving, thus lifts the stern and lowers the bow.
The principle is simple, the result is impressive. Without squeezing the throttle, the speed increases and the boat glides in the optimum position, regardless of weight distribution and speed.
The heart of the system is the flap control, with or without a position indicator. Two drive types are available; hydraulic or electric. The advantages and disadvantages of these different drives are noticed in their installations, their effort to maintain effort and their accuracy of control; for example a hydraulic system requires a much more complex installation than an electric system.
