Re: Smart tab

I'm an aluminum hull guy but I have heard people talk about adding a small hump of glass near the rear of the hull at center how high how wide depends on how bad the hop I would think its a if you dont succeed try try again type of thing. I would honestly do the trim tab just not a Lenco P.O.S.
