I was going to ask the same question. I found my 4-tec Sportster was very well suited to light chop with the stock setup. It held the water very well for a 15' boat (when compared to my 14' Speedster (97)). I really never saw the need for trim on mine.
why would you want to fit trim tabs to a boat this small?

I just got my 05 Sportster with the 155HP engine this past weekend. So far I love it, it’s small enough that I can launch it by myself in the lake and big enough that I can be almost all day out on it. I did notice that once you get over 30MPH the ride gets very choppy and it’s fairly easy to catch some air when around 40MPH with almost any size chop. This being my first boat ever, while a lot of fun, I got a little scared with the boat slamming down on the water at 40MPH. I don’t think the speedometer is very exact because it is always fluctuating and I don’t think I have gone past 40 yet. Of course I am aware that this is a small boat and I did wanted something small like this. But I have a question; is this normal behavior? And in that case I am sure the boat is built for that kind of punishment. It’s my first boat on my first week with it, so I guess I might be a little paranoid about not breaking it… What are your thoughts?
