Does Whaler have a typo with the pricing of their installed trim tabs?

For the 270 it's only $360.00

I'm looking to have the tabs installed on my 190 Nantucket before the start of our boating season however I was wondering what it might have cost others that have installed the tabs on their boats

I recently purchased/installed a pair of Lenco 9x12 trim tabs with the Indicator switch for $629. They're sure worth the money!

Put a set of Lenco 9x12 with the fancy switch on the Whaler Outrage 20. They work like a charm!

Shop around on the net. I paid like $420 or so for the whole setup including shipping!

Electric trim tabs are standard equipment on the 270 OUTRAGE. The option you are mentioning that costs only $360 is to add the electric trim tab position indicator to the system.

This may help you better understand the apparently low cost.

I'm defintely going with Lenco tabs with the combination LED display switch with auto retract.
What size trim tabs would you recommend for my 190 Nantucket?

Should I get the Transom space saver type or standard?

How do you run the wire on the Portside when the transom is solid?

I personally would recommend the 9" x 12" Lencos as they work well on my 20' Outrage.

The control cable is a different animal. On my application I drilled the holes in the Lenco top cylinder mounts and through drilled the transom and then ran the control wires.

You can just as easily run the control cable into the motor well from the outside of the transom and drop down into the bilge.

Do you have pics of your boat with the tabs on?
I am going to install them pretty soon, and I
also have a 20 outrage, 1997 model.

No but I can take some this weekend and post them as we are in the process of putting it back together after adding a few items and it is in the boat shed now. I'll post them this weekend for you.
