Anyone by chance have a 2006 x15 and have done this. Trying to figure where the best place to purchase is and what part number or model. I really donít want to pay the dealer, I know they will be way more expensive.

It would be nice if you post in this forum and let everyone know what you did. That way, anyone that comes along after will have the information.

Lenco PN 20609-021

This is the part number for the one that I ordered years back for our 07 X2. I ordered it from D and B Marine. It is a nonstock order item.

Mastercraft center trim kit

From what I have found the Mastercraft PN 559047 Trim kit was used most V hulls from 2004-2014 and it is custom made for Mastercraft by Lenco they also make the Gen 1 and Gen 2 surf tabs but will not sell them to you.

This is one of those cases where you have to determine if the "juice is worth the squeeze". I looked at doing this about 5 years ago when all the parts including the dash cheek plates were still available and it was just going to be too expensive for me to justify. There is a noticeable difference and if I were buying another boat I would consider having the plate a plus but honestly wouldn't see tabs as a must have item, at least not for me.

While on the tab subject... I have a friend with the Gen 1 tab system and we have stopped using them entirely. We basically fill the tanks, add a bag to the side we're surfing on, set the boat to 19 MPH and the surf wake is outstanding. There may be some better setting with the tabs but the pre programmed settings that used the tabs and auto launch sucked, at least for us.

Just to update. Was able to get trim tab installed. Once you get over the thought of drilling all those holes in your boat it is a pretty easy install or at least I felt it was. I bought a trim tab off a fellow mastercraft owner from this forum so it saved me a lot from buying somewhere else. That was MC part number 559047 I am pretty sure. For my 06 X15 the bracket to hold the actuator on went to an area on the boat that wasn’t flat so I also order a special bracket which was MC part number 530060. Lastly I purchased a Lenox switch which is part number 15095-001. Mounted the tab flush with the bottom of the boat at each end with just the ribs hanging below the bottom of the boat. Made a jig out of some 1x4’s to hold it in place while I marked the locations for the screws. I also put painters tape over the areas before I drilled the holes to help keep the gel coat from cracking outside of where I drilled. Found the wires from the circuit breaker that was already in the boat for trim tab.(was an option in 06) and wired that to my switch. After that it was just a couple plugs and I was good to go. Now just have to wait for warm weather to get her back out on the water and see how it does. From most of what I have read most people say it is nice to have. Here are some pictures of it installed. Still have a little clean up to do but other than that it’s all done. May have to make a small notch on the bottom of my platform because of the wire but mine is teak so that will be really easy. Now for another project.

So I got out on the water today for the first time and was going about 34 and put the trim tab down all the way and the boat seemed to get really squirrelly and had a big rooster tail and made the boat almost lean to the right. Didn’t seem to change the wake at all, had hoped it would make it a little better for skiing. Obviously I’m going to play with it some more but any suggestions on what I may be doing wrong. Should I have some ballast in? When it it all the way up it is flat with the bottom of the boat and it really doesn’t extend down all that far. Any suggestions?
