I have a good friend who just bought a 2010 X-25 with all three tabs. Does anyone know if there is an auto launch that puts all three tabs down until it's on plane and then pulls them back up? Our 2012 does but I'm not sure about the 2010's.

the attiude tab wored great in our '11. Surf tabs were either all to the port or sarboard. very little control over them. I have heard a few bypassing MC controls and putting on regular Lenco controllers to get more useful tabs.

Our boat has done great with just using the center tab but if there's several thousand pounds of ballast having all three helps for sure. I'll let him know about manually controlling them too.

Something that I have learned with my 2012 X45 is that if I am stuck with either the port or starboard side tab down, if I just hold the tab up switch, then the center tab raises and then both of the surf tabs will also raise all they way up. This prevents getting stuck in a cycle where you are just going back and forth between the two surf tabs. I was annoyed at first because I only thought I could toggle between the two surf tabs, but then I realized you can manually raise all 3 up out of the way.

When you say hold up the tab switch are you referring to holding up the center tab switch and keeping it depressed until they surf tabs raise up too?
