How do Nauticus Smart Tabs work?

SMART TABS adjust automatically according to overall boat weight. The five-hole adjustment built into each trim plate can be customized to produce more stern lift if needed. To do this, increase the lift pressure by moving the actuators away from the transom to a higher number on the plates.
