Default Bennett M120 Sport Tabs

Hi everyone !
I am looking at buying some trim tabs (Bennett M120 sport tabs) along with position indicators. Where is the cheapest place to get them? I don't have a problem buying them online. I live in Ontario but will shop in the U.S if the price is better. Any input will be appreciated.
Rick

    Hi Snowaterdude, I think that most of us got our Mariahs with power tabs already installed, ours had Boat Leveler Co. brand tabs installed so we didn't need to purchase them.

    As for the best price, eBay is a good start, but I would just search the internet in general, sometimes eBay isn't the best price.

    Good luck,
    WetWilly

    Well....I just bought my tabs online tonight.

    I debated between Lenco and Bennett but after reading and watching a lot of youtube, the electric actuators scared me a tad. Ater all in the aviation, we mostly use hydraulics. If it's good for planes, it must be good for boats.

    I have been shopping for the last 2 nights and finally found an alright deal. Memory supplier is the site where I got them from. Bennett M120 Sport tabs with the "Electronic Indicator Control" (EIC 5000). It came to $645US shipped to my door. Slightly over $700cdn. Not bad at all. I couldn't touch anything here in Canada under $900

    I found a site who was listing them for only $599 but were charging me $118 to ship to Canada.....Gotta read those small prints I tell you...

    I should have them within 7 days or so.....Another fun litlle project. I am looking forward to the installation. Hopefully I will get to try them this year and let you all know what I think....If the snow lands early, then the snowmobile will take priority...

    Hey Snowaterdude, sounds like a winner, let us know how it goes.

    If you can, would it be possible to document the installation including a few pictures along the way so others can see what's involved? We could add it to our "How To" section".

    Well, just a thought...

    Good luck,
    WetWilly

    I never thought about that.....Sounds like a great plan. I have seen many people fixing something either on a motorcycle or a snowmobile and posting everything step by step. It is so usefull and easier than reading instructions. If I get some nice weather before I winterize the boat, it will be done this fal, l otherwise I may have to wait until the spring...I will definitely do that....Great idea!

    Guess what! I will be receiving my tabs on Tuesday because Monday is Thanks Giving here in Canada. I winterized my boat yesterday. Looks like I will install the tabs in the spring.I am presently doing the pre season check on the snowmobile.As I said, I will take pictures as I do it so I can share with everyone....
