I have a lowly 226 with automatic tabs. They make a HUGE difference when it comes to planing time. Next time you're out, try seeing how slow you can plane with the tabs deployed. That might surprize you too.

Many thanks for the advice! I was going to ask if the gph went up with tab use but if the mph are up then the gph should be at least even or probably better.
... just fell off my to-do list and was replaced with "trim tabs"...
so funny because tabs are climbing it's way up to the top of my list too! ... because of this place!
that picture makes me wish I was on my boat...sigh...

Trim tabs are the best thing I bought for my boat next to the drive shower, ah... a more than the drive shower but I do love the drive shower.
We boat on Lake Michigan and our boat tames the waves. and the time to plane is drastically improved.
Trim tabs are a necessity.

Kind of changing the subject here a little bit, but in regard to a drive shower, I'm thinking of adding one to my B3. Any reccommendations as to brand?
