    In fact i won't be drilling anything in the hull. The tab hinge will attach to the aluminium frame (blue in the image below) and the frame will be bolted to the swimming platform brackets.

    I sent the drawing to the local sheet metal shop so they can make be the tabs. Now i am working on the arduino program and on the control box.

    Yes it does, that's why i am jacking it up by 2.5''. It should clean-up the wave.

    I read your thread but did not realize it was a direct drive boat. The wave is really improved. I hope I will have a comparable result !

    I thought of putting an NSS system but I do not want to drill my hull and I want an automatic system. Installing an NSS system attached on the brackets of the swim platform would not work, it would be too much in cantilevered i think.

    My cousin sent me a picture of a Supra direct drive with surf tabs that was on his neighbors lift. I will see if I can find the pictures.

    Good deal.

    When I put tabs on my 2007, I had to raise my swim platform about 1 to be able to mount the actuators.

    I used a strips of HDPE on top of the swim platform mounts.

    I also swapped out the old platform for a new surf platform and a nice pad on it.

    Gate received and controller programming almost completed. I just need to find some time to finish the frame and to assemble this.
