Proper installation of Attitude Adjustment Plate on X35
An attitude adjustment plate was installed on my 2008 X35 by the dealer. I was surprised to find that it does not retract up behind the boat to be "out of the way" when fully raised, like other trim tabs I've seen. Instead, it sticks straight out behind the boat like and extension of the hull.

Is this the correct installation, or did the dealer make a mistake? I can't find any photos anywhere to indicate what is correct...

I don't beleive mine retrancts up passed horizontal. Not the best angle but you can see that the attitude plate is horizontal.

Pretty sure mine is horizontal too.

My 2010 X-15 is horizontal just as in the picture. Came from the manufacture that way.

I guess that makes me feel better. It seems, though, that the essentially extended hull changes the characteristics of the wake, especially for wake surfing. Any idea why MC chose not to have the thing retract to at least one position where it wouldn't influence the wake?

if i see it right they put the bracket on the boat to low.There for they need to place the two black brackets on the plate otherwise the plate was even lower as it is right now.
On the photo in this reply you will see a orginal wakeplate on a 09 x35 in his highest position.
