Re: 290DC Question Regarding Hull Structure

Am connecting to Garmin 5212 via Garmin GSD22. I tested port side about 8" forward of transom and again just hanging it over the side. Return was not much different so I think I've found my location. Thanks for the feedback.

Do any of you WorldCat owners have trim tabs? Where did you install them? Are they effective or nece...

290 DC Questions

I finally had a chance to take a close look at a 290 DC last weekend. First, I want to compliment World Cat on a fantastic design!
