I emailed them about the room that i have to mount them. They said no problem. Did anyone else put the smart tabs on a capri 1950 like mine? If you did can you post pics?

I guess you want to put them out as far as possible, not in towards the drive?

I don't know how similar our hulls are, but on my 2012 185, I had essentially the same "chine" in the middle of my transom on the hull. I did move the tabs out as far as I thought possible...here is a pic. I don't know if it helps much...

Thanks Rob. The only thing different on mine is that it steps out a bit on the stern. I imagine that the shock adjustments will be able to compensate for the that. Its not mounted on the same surface, its going to be mounted above the step up.

So i tried them out yesterday with shocks in the middle hole like they suggested. Going no wake zone and slow it was great. No bow wonder. however, trying to get up on plane, the boat listed to the left drastically. I had to slow down. so i went to the beach and adjusted it a bit. Got a little better.

I had the wife sit infront on the same side as me and it was ok.

Any suggestions?
