TrimSync - Trim Monitoring and Alignment System

Operating a multi-engine offshore powerboat can be a little overwhelming at times.  That’s probably why offshore racing is the only motorsport that requires two drivers. Most offshore boats have an engine trim button built into the throttle lever handle.  We all know that the drives rarely stay perfectly even using just the BOTH button on the throttles.  Having them offset can impact handling, and can be dangerous at high speeds.  So that after a couple of moves we are all reaching to the dash to try and even them out.  Over and over again.

TrimSync is a patent pending device that monitors the trim for twin and triple engine boats, so when the operator presses the BOTH/ALL button, it will automatically adjust the drives to be in perfect alignment, every time.  You will never have to worry about how accurate your mechanical trim indicators are because TrimSync will always move the slowest drive to match the others.  There are no extra buttons or complicated operating instructions, just push the BOTH button and TrimSync does the rest.

If, for some reason, you want one drive to be at a different trim then push that drive’s trim button and it will move just as it always has. TrimSync will re-align the drive trim the next time you push the BOTH button. Just drive!

Marine Design’s TrimSync Testimonials:

Backed by five decades of professional powerboat racing experience in multiple classes from his Allison Boats start in 1969 to tunnel boats in the mid 70s to more current victories the last twenty years in an array of offshore V-bottoms – one must only say the name Ben and it’s evident the respected world-champion racer being referenced is Ben Robertson, president of South Carolina-based BAR Marine Group. And while his early career includes time spent at Cigarette Racing Team and a more recent partnership as a stateside representative for Predator Performance Boats out of Norway, by and far, the badge Ben Robertson wears most proudly from the brand that defines him is – Fountain Faithful!

As a result, when someone with Robertson’s wealth of nautical expertise speaks out in favor of a product, the boating community listens… and does so attentively! Such is the case with TrimSync the game-changer from Marine Design, in which he’s been an outspoken advocate of for seven years repetitively stating, “I won’t race professionally or run a boat for pleasure if TrimSync isn’t installed.”

Campaigning Peter Meyer’s Fountain Instigator at the 2014 Key West Worlds is when Ben first became aware of the innovative instrument after hearing the success stories from Team Gone Again and STIHL Racing which had them installed in the catamarans; discovering the device’s capabilities during testing is what hooked him in. Climbing out of Instigator at the docks, “All you have to do is push a button,” he said. That day Mike Clesceri, the proprietor of Marine Design and the architect of TrimSync, took on the "button guy" moniker.

Robertson explained, “TrimSync keeps the drives perfectly even which is the biggest job of the throttleman, plus another major advantage is the fact, there’s no need to look down at the indicators. The impact it makes on how to trim the boat and keep the drives synchronized is huge. The beauty of the system is that it has an infinite amount of numbers to work off of, whereas, Mercury cables and digital indicators don’t come close to being that precise. Even when Mercury introduced Auto Trim it was speed controlled only up to 50 mph… with TrimSync it’s about user input and control.”

The recall feature has four preset modes that let you set or automatically sync the drives to the exact position you want for: getting on plane; going into the turn trimming down; accelerating out of the turn trimming up; and half way down the straightaway when trimming the drives in with less slip and better hooking up of the props. In addition, this takes the load off the competitive racer, not to mention, the pleasure boat poker runner who is always making adjustments during go time!

Racing is where Robertson fell in love with the system and learned to make it work; today he continues to triumph in that arena. This past August at the 33rd Lake of the Ozarks Shootout, he laid down a 152-mph pass in Swedish powerboater Christian Dahlberg’s 2008 Fountain. For the speed run, Robertson engaged just two presets, rightfully titled: launch mode and haulin’ ass! Off the competitive course, businesswise Robertson is also seeing big gains on his BAR Marine Group customers’ triple and quad center consoles by way of 2-to 3-mph bump-ups in speed and an improved fuel economy of up to ten percent. Because the multi-outboard crafts are often improperly trimmed due to the longer drive shaft of the center engine (or engines) which throw off the geometry, he’s discovered it’s necessary to trim the middle one (or two) buried in the water just two degrees higher.

For a not-so-experienced boater, removing the “how and where” guess work from the equation is worth its weight in gold, and whilst it takes a bit of skill to set up the perfect angles, once the task is complete TrimSync keeps the engines perfectly offset and aligned. Competitively priced and easy-to-use, Clesceri guides you through the software programming, and even better, with a Wi-Fi connection the system can be remotely accessed for setup and diagnostics. Isn’t it time you tried TrimSync?
