    I am considering installing these on my 2004 340 Sundancer. I would like to here from anyone who has used them. Do they work as advertised? Are they worth 350 dollars? Thanks.[​IMG]

    I haven't used them, personally. But, I can think of at least a few customers who have them and have only good things to say - that they do exactly as advertised.

    Have them and they do indeed work as advertised.

    They work so well, in fact, that you tend to forget about them.

    Got a set (not auto) for Christmas. Even on the 215 make a huge difference. Bennett stands behind thier product. Heard good reviews and very impressed with the results. I couldn't do without them now.

    Had this on my last boat and they did work as claimed. I'm giving it some time before adding them now since our current boat doesn't seem to need much tab usage even in windy conditions.

    Bennett is great to deal with as well. Had my main sensor go on the fritz and they replaced it right away and asked for the broken one to see what happened - all that without a receipt!

    I have the first version and they work great. My 330 is undertabbed (and not yet upgraded like some of the other early 330 owners have done) so the autotabs help a lot to eliminate the constant adjustment.

    Have had the older model ac2000 for eight years and never had a problem, set the system at the beginning of the season and your ready for the season. My son-im-law purchased the newer model ac3000 for $225.00 on E-Bay, whatever thr price they are well worth it.
