Trim Tabs vs. Boat Interceptors: What's the difference? 

If you’re a boat owner, you probably have heard of trim tabs and boat interceptors. But what exactly is the difference between these two? Trim tabs and boat interceptors both affect how a boat behaves in the water. The difference between them lies in how they work.
Trim tabs are small horizontal metal plates located below the water line, when activated, they move up and down independently of the vessel, adjusting the elevation or pitch of the boat.
Boat interceptors, on the other hand, are vertical plates placed on the bottom edge of sterns or transoms to generate additional lift and provide flexibility in terms of making adjustments when desired. Both types of equipment help improve fuel economy as well as make boats more responsive to steering commands, boat interceptors also deploy faster and create more lift with less surface area, which makes them the better option.
