Performance Tabs for Inflatable Boats.

Help to get boat on a plane faster and with smaller outboard.

Tabs come in 2 sizes: LARGE for dinghy type boats, and SMALL for narrow boats or KaBoats. Please make sure to select correct size above. Large tabs will NOT fit on narrow KaBoats. 

Introducing our game-changing Performance Tabs for Inflatable Boats – the ultimate solution to elevate your boating experience to new heights! Designed to enhance your vessel's performance, these tabs are engineered to get your boat on a plane faster and with a smaller outboard, ensuring maximum efficiency and exhilarating speed on the water.

Choose from two convenient sizes tailored to fit your specific boat type: LARGE tabs ideal for dinghy-style boats, and SMALL tabs perfect for narrow boats or KaBoats. Ensure you select the correct size to optimize your boat's performance – remember, large tabs are not compatible with narrow KaBoats. Please measure distance between tubes to make sure when tabs will be installed, there will still be enough space for outboard motor shaft to rotate freely, and to raise up when needed.

Crafted with precision, our tabs are meticulously designed to seamlessly integrate with your inflatable boat's transom. Prioritize safety and functionality by measuring the distance between tubes to guarantee ample space for the outboard motor shaft to rotate freely, ensuring hassle-free installation and operation.

Experience an improvement in your inflatable motor boat's performance with our cutting-edge Lifting Tabs. Accelerate faster, achieve higher speeds with smaller outboards, and reduce fuel consumption with ease. Say goodbye to sluggish acceleration and inefficient planning – our tabs make it effortless for boats with smaller outboard motors or heavier loads to plane smoothly and move swiftly through the water.

Our innovative Saturn lifting tabs are engineered to complement your existing dinghy wheel system, offering unparalleled versatility and convenience. Simply attach the tabs to your boat's transom, and watch as they revolutionize your boating experience. No more struggling with a raised bow – our tabs ensure a smooth transition onto the plane, resulting in increased speed and reduced gas consumption.

What sets our lifting tabs apart is their unique bracket design, which is compatible with our popular dinghy wheels. With just one hole's difference, you can effortlessly swap between wheels and tabs, providing you with unmatched flexibility and adaptability on the water. Use the wheels to effortlessly launch your boat into the water, then seamlessly transition to the tabs for an exhilarating ride.

Elevate your boating adventures today with our Performance Tabs for Inflatable Boats – where innovation meets unparalleled performance on the water.

Lifting Tabs Assembly, Installation and Water Test:

Customer's video tabs install on FB385. Skip to 2.22 time.

Custom set up plus Tabs on Small CB330 boat.

Very impressive. Complete difference between what was and how boat rides now. Have small 4HP on CB290 boats. Now boat can really fly even with that small motor. Used to bow goes up when riding, not it goes strait.

Wow... it did worked. Now I can plane on my Kaboat with 3HP Tohatsu

I am excited about the lifting tabs, but like everything else you buy online the instructions are atrocious.
