Tabs

Looking at that picture mate there's a slight water mark where it's been left on the water Basically you want you tabs more or less just a fraction above that line or in the picture slightly above the bottom line of the stainless transome plate. This will give you full range of movement on the tabs. Or a way of looking at it is when the boat is on the plain and at speed they are an extension of the boat in the normal position if this makes sence.....

Thanks ash
Very helpful
The only problem I have is the un even ness down there because of the bulge at the bottom, which makes me think running them flat may not be possible as I wouldn't be able to mount them properly

Chris,
Its hard to tell from that pic but does the bulge have a flat face at all?
If so could you not mount the tab to that area and then make a packer for the top of the ram to push that out the same amount?
