I'm having trouble getting my Gman on plane when solo, even with a 9.9 Mercury. This boat is all about simplicity to me, so I hate to add more electronics. I'm currently using ballast up front, but would like to get away from that.

What do you think about Nauticus Smart Tabs? http://nauticusinc.com/smart-tabs/

They make a 7X9 with a 20 lb actuator, which seems a bit large, but is the smallest option.

Thanks all.
