    Default Adding side trim tabs on older boat?

    I see you can buy side trim tabs as an add on. Has anyone tried adding two smaller ones on each side to help shape the wave? I see this on newer stuff, and it doesnít look that complicated to add on to my 06.

    You can do that but they are only used one side at a time . The cheapest way is with a suck gate and move it to the opposite side you want to surf.

    Yes, I talked to a guy on FB that retrofitted them on an older boat and said they work great. Only problem is they said Malibu will take you to court over it if you offer it to anyone.

    Yeah I think if you try to sell a similar design they will take you to court. I donít think they can if you build something for personal use. Malibu has a very strong patent and they defend it rightfully so.
