Tom I have read alot of your posts and find them very informative. I purchased a 2000 340da with 7.4 MPI's in June and love our dancer! The smooth ride and handling are awesome but when we get into 3 to 4 footers running heavy(6 or 8 people on board, full of fuel and water) it rides very high in the bow even with tabs full down. It also seems to need nearly full trim even when running light in 2 footers or less. It gets on plane quickly with tabs full down but the bow never comes down if I decrease tabs even a little. I have read a lot of threads about increasing the tabs anywhere from 40 to 60 percent. Bennett's sizing chart calls for 42" x 9" for this length boat which is nearly double the size of the tabs from the factory. What size tabs does this boat need for optimum handling and performance? Is the obvious reason of saving a few dollars why Sea Ray made them so undersized? I plan on "fixing" them this winter as soon as the boat is out of the water after I figure out what size they need to be. Will Bennett tabs bolt right on without modifications? Thanks in advance for your help.
