All personnel must wear personal flotation device, hard hat, safety shoes and gloves
during RRDF operations and maintenance. Failure to observe these precautions
could result in serious injury or death.
Beware of other craft or objects coming alongside while working outboard as
serious injury may result if body parts are crushed between boat and other
craft or objects.
Improper trim tab adjustment can cause difficult steering, resulting in loss of control
and damage to equipment and/or injury to personnel.
A propeller will generate steering torque when the propeller shaft is not running parallel to
the waters surface. The trim tab is adjustable to compensate for this steering torque.
A single trim tab adjustment will relieve steering effort under only one set of speed, motor
angle and load conditions. No single adjustment can relieve steering effort under all
speeds, motor angle and load conditions.
Loosen trim tab screw (1).
