The first crucial phase when starting navigation is undoubtedly the trim adjustment of the boat. In fact, for the safety of the boat and its passengers, it is necessary for it to achieve planing and then settle into its optimal trim. To facilitate this, it is necessary to use trim tabs and flap plates.Osculati.com offers trim tabs in both kit, single, or double formats, as well as individual components of the trim tab. When applied laterally to the boat, these tools ensure its proper stabilization and the correct trim. They can come in electronic formats with various sizes and structures, depending on specific stabilization loads and different boat models: Edge Mount, narrow, perfect for inflatable boats and when space is limited at the stern; Heavy Duty, for large and fast inflatables; High and High with a double piston, suitable for very fast hulls; Standard or Super strong, for fast and heavy hulls.However, on Osculati's online catalog, you can also find pairs of flap plates, typically made of stainless steel and available in various thicknesses. These specific tools are capable of stabilizing the boat, adapting to various navigation situations, as they can rotate up to 180° without straining or breaking. The control kits for these plates, which can also be purchased individually on the website, may vary depending on the chosen flap model and can be either electro-hydraulic, electromechanical, or mechanical.Another crucial component for the boat is the exhaust muffler. Thanks to it, you have the ability to assist in cooling the valves and expelling exhaust gases. Osculati offers various models of these tools, each more suitable for a specific exhaust system the boat is equipped with. In general, the website offers mufflers for water-cooled engines, with different volumes and different mounting positions.To facilitate the elimination of exhaust gases and ensure the proper functioning of the entire system, anti-siphon loops and water/gas separators are also of great help. For noisy exhausts, it's also important not to forget about mufflers, which can also be directly integrated into the exhaust system.
