    Definitely go with the 18's.
    Zipwake is going to tell you to put as much tab as you can fit.
    They're right because interceptors have a much lower size-to-drag ratio than plate-type tabs.
    Furthermore, even if you don't need the additional trimming power of the 18's, that added power increases the effectiveness of the auto anti-roll feature.

    Bill,

    Jamie from Imtra here. That's a great setup you have there. As mentioned before there is really no downside with going with as much coverage as possible. Based on the pictures of the transom and performance of the boat I would recommend the 450mm units however for a minimal investment you could go with the 600mm units. This will allow for a smaller stroke on the units to generate lift and the pitch and roll control performance will be much better if you need it due to the added coverage.

    Hope this helps. If you have any additional questions feel free to give me a call.

    Best Regards,


    Jamie Simmons

    I put my zipwake system on my 28 Northern Bay this season and I went with the 600 model.
