    Damn it thats a badass Howard

    Thanks for the input guys, I think something like that dual ram setup with an eventual upgrade to the Dana tabs is the direction I'm heading. Anybody got some used Dana tabs for sale?

    I would try the duel ram bennet tabs 12x12 or 12x16 I would also remove that small extended tab that bolts to the bottom of the boat if your going to use trim tabs. Here is a picture of mine with them on it mount them parallel to the boats bottom not like mine

    I would be willing to sell this set up. My boat has enough horse power that it doesn't need them now.

    Random thoughts...Gene didn't buy Howard Custom Boats until well after yours was built and I get the feeling from Gene that if he didn't build it, he doesn't care much about it...Put a level on those gap fillers that have been inserted into the cavitation plate recesses in the bottom. It's my guess that they're no longer flat to the bottom from somebody messing with them.

    I can't imagine why you'd run your boat with the drive fully down once on plane. As soon as it planes out, I'd be trimming to get the boat to break the water well back of the nose.

    Best bet is to get another boat to run alongside yours and video what you're trying to describe here...post the video and then let all of us arm chair boat kustomizers fix your boat problems...

    I trim up when the water is smooth.
    I was kinda hesitant to call the builder on a 30+ year old boat that I didn't buy from them.
    I need to throw a straight edge on the bottom.

    Thank you

    I just called him the other day with a question about mine and he was totally cool about it, I don't know what year he bought Howard though, my boat may be one he built.

    I think that and Gene and Mike tooled the newer deck that yours has so my guess is that Gene built your boat.

    Hopped on the boards today and I had a PM from Gene at Howard Boats. He told me to call him regardless of who built my boat. Spent probably 40 mins talking with me about boats including whats going on with mine. Great guy, great conversation. Thank you Gene!
