SLT Self-Leveling Tabs

Description: NEW! Good things come in small packages. Now you can have the durability of a Bennett trim tab system with a quick and easy installation. There is nothing to do inside the boat – only the mounting of two actuators and two tabs at the transom. It’s an affordable, simple solution for small boats from 10 to 20 feet.

The SLT uses some of the same high-quality, proven materials and superior design used in Bennett standard systems for more than 50 years.

Your SLT kit includes:

• Two 14-gauge stainless steel trim tab assemblies with Bennett’s exclusive interlocking hinge
• Two strong and durable actuators
• All stainless steel hardware – no plastic!
• Bennett’s no-hassle 5-year warranty on All Components

With the SLT, you can plane at lower speeds, improve your hole shot, reduce engine laboring, improve fuel efficiency and eliminate porpoising. The SLT reacts instantly to boat speed and water pressure by adding trim when it’s needed. You get a better ride while the SLT does all the work.

It’s a value that can’t be beat – a quality, durable system that’s quick and easy to install and backed by the best customer service you will experience anywhere. View More Information

Auto Tab Control

Auto Tab Control

Description: Get a Perfectly Trimmed Boat - Every Time!

The first and still the most affordable way to automatically trim your boat. Bennett Marine pioneered the Auto Tab Control (ATC) to be easy to install and use. It does exactly what it says it does – interacting directly with your trim tab system to automatically monitor your boat’s position and maintain the perfect cruising attitude. Note that the Auto Tab Control does not replace a manual control required for your trim tab system.

Major Benefits:

Saves you money on fuel. A properly trimmed boat can significantly lower fuel costs in a single season of usage.
Easy to install - just plug and play! Very few tools are needed for installation, and everything plugs right into the ATC Control Unit.
No more guesswork - it trims the boat better than you can. Calculating more than a thousand attitude readings per second, the ATC adjusts your trim tabs to changes in vessel speed, sea conditions and shifting weight.
The most comfortable ride you’ve ever had on your boat. Maintain the best cruising attitude without the need to constantly work manual trim controls.
