    I am considering having a dealer install tabs similar to the ones on the new Tige' boats. $3500 installed and the are bigger than the autoflow 1's. Not sure if they are as big as the autoflow 2 tabs. The dealer has done a bunch of installs on Moombas (XLV and LSV's) and I chatted with them at the boat show in Salt Lake City. Sounds like the suck gate can still be helpful as well. Anyone gone that route?

    I've seen it first hand. Do they help? Yes, is it perfect, no. We still use a "suck gate" device to clean up the wave. The biggest thing they do is reduce the need to list by changing the ballast distribution from port to starboard. Honestly, try a suck gate first and see what you think. It's going to be a MUCH cheaper experiment.
