Many of us have boats with outdrives with tilt & trim, but also have trim tabs. Here's the question: What's the best way to use trim tabs and the outdrive's tilt & trim together to achieve the best performance/mpg?
There seem to be two competing views. One says to use the outdrive's tilt and trim as much as possible, and the trim tabs only to the extent that the outdrive's tilt & trim needs some help to get the job done. The theory behind this approach is that the trim tabs cause a lot of drag and are best used as little as possible.
The other approach says to use the trim tabs to control the boat's attitude in the water, and the tilt & trim to maximize thrust.
How do you do it?
