Jeff Bridges’ eloquent Golden Globes Trim Tabs analogy didn’t exactly nail our functionality, but he was sure right about one thing… trim tabs “really make a difference!” To learn more about Bennett Trim Tabs, check out our Trim Tab Guide!
Thanks for the mention Jeff, and congrats!
You're all Trim Tabs!
This week Bennett Marine lost a personal friend and an outstanding employee. Tom McGow, also known in many online boating forums as “Tabman” had been going above and beyond to help boaters for years. He was well known in the industry for providing exemplary product support for Bennett, but also for taking conversations to a deeper, personal level. For Tom, it was genuinely and simply about helping guys out, one boater to another. He will be surely missed!
If you wish to express condolences, there are active comment threads on the Hull Truth, and on our Facebook page:
AutoTrim Pro Adjusts Trim Tabs – Automatically
Invented by Bennett Marine, auto tab control features have been maintaining boat trim since 1992. Bennet took trim control to the next level in 2016 with the introduction of the AutoTrim Pro, an all-in-one helm control with the auto tab feature built right in. The control automatically adjusts trim tabs to level your boat’s pitch and roll by sensing changes in vessel speed, sea conditions, and shifting weight. With AutoTrim Pro, you can enjoy the convenience of riding in auto mode with the ability to shift to manual mode at any time. AutoTrim Pro is like cruise control for your trim tabs!
A Significantly More Affordable Upgrade
Previously, the only option for an electric trim tab system with auto tab control was Lenco’s Autoglide–-an option that is simply too expensive for many boat owners. Moreover, the Autoglide system is limited in the fact that you can only use it with Lenco’s own trim tab systems. AutoTrim Pro is an all-in-one control system designed for boats of all sizes, and can be easily installed with other existing trim tab systems (including Lenco’s) or as part of a complete Bennett Marine electric system. In addition, electric and hydraulic versions of AutoTrim Pro are available for both aftermarket and OEM applications. Best of all, AutoTrim Pro is about half the price of AutoGlide, making it the most affordable system of its kind on the market.
The Benefits of AutoTrim Pro Are Clear
AutoTrim Pro packs a boatload of features into a compact, affordable, and easy-to-use design. Boaters can automatically reduce bow rise, correct listing, and return to manual tab control all at the touch of a button. Manual adjustments are made easy with “All Up” and “All Down” buttons to fully retract or deploy tabs. AutoTrim Pro allows you to easily set and recall the perfect running attitude for your boat by allowing you to store your two favorite positions in memory. AutoTrim Pro even protects tabs during storage and trailering with automatic tab retraction.
Bennett Marine invented trim tab technology in 1959. Now, with AutoTrim Pro, Bennett has created the most affordable, compatible auto tab control solution on the market today. OEMs should contact Bennett for a demo unit while active distributors should call for wholesale pricing. End users can simply search online for “AutoTrim Pro” to buy online or locate their nearest distributor.
