Mounted on the transom. The tab drops down vertically
parallel with the transom and creates pressure on the
underside of the hull with less drag.

Mike, you should call Ronnie and ask him about his. He had the volvo's but had a lot of trouble with them. He made ones out of Lenco tabs that slide up and down on brackets. Btw, this is mike, we seabassed on Ronnie's boat last winter together. I have the 36 nb.
