Hi gays,


Iím new here, from Europe, Serbia!
I have 2010. X-35, LY6 engine, surf tabs, DVD, tower camera, 4 tower speakers with light, underwater lighting and almost all of other options except trim tab, navigation and Zero Off.

My question is, can anyone suggest is it worth to have trim tab?

If I install kit in my boat how can I control tab?

Any suggestion will help, thanks in ahead!

The trim tab kits come with a switch to move them up and down and some come with a gauge so you can see the current position of the tab.

Maybe a dumb question, but what will trim tabs do that surf tabs don't??

Setting can’t be seen on the BIG screen?

I believe surf tabs kind of roll the boat over from side to side where as trim tab changes the boats trim in the water IE bow up or bow down.

Surf tabs work only at low speed and I can’t do anything special with the wake shape.
That’s why I ask is it better with one tab in the middle like I sow on some picture here.

I think if you had a dealer add the trim tab they could probably get it wired into the big but it would be costly.

Does anyone know size of trim tab plate?

I have look on Lenco Marine webpage, they supply MC with surf and trim tabs, you can find several kits for normal price.

I hear you, well what you might want to try is calling a dealer here in the states and see if they can get you all the factory parts that would work with the BIG. Short of that you will have to do a stand alone install.

I've never driven an X35 so I don't know how much a center trim tab would change/help.

What are you trying to accomplish with the install?

My boat make a huge wave, especially when is more people in the boat.

Wake is the best with less than half fuel in tank and 3-4 people in the boat.

Since we are more or less wakeboard beginners my idea was the make the wave less steep.
