      Yes, that is what they are called. They make two kinds. One that is a solid one piece design and the other type which you refer to which are two seperate fins that bolt on. All these mount to your cav. plate and are a lot cheaper than trim tabs. On your rig I would think it would help you get planed a little bit better. Only $27.00 at west. I wouldnt spend a whole bunch as no matter what you put on your setup, with a 9.5 pushing it, it will not jump on plane and run fast. This may help you though.

        Go with the fins I don't think that tabs would do much for the set up you have the fin should help you plane better.

          I think the fins are the best performance addition for the least amount of money. Wal-Mart carries the Sting-Ray and they have a lifetime guarantee.
