Californian 38 Sedan

I am new to the Forum and new to a Californian 38 Sedan. Iím confused on which Bennett trim tab actuators it has. One was frozen during the survey and the boat is back in the water with no way of having it checked. There appears to be four rings on the cylinder with the hidden hydrologic line in the top of the actuator. Bennett offers an 11 3/4Ē and a 13 3/4Ē actuator. (Non electric). Iím thinking of buying two of each size then returning the ones that donít fit. Any advice would be appreciated. Thanks!

Given Bennet a call. Their support is legendary. They can give you the dimensions of each as well as other identifying information, and can probably also give you some debugging steps to take.

Then, just go down with a snorkel mask and measure. They are just beneath the water line, likely just under the swim step. Easy to get to, at least for measuring purposes.

Thanks for the advice. I have no access to the boat until it goes to the boat yard for paint. Guess I will order both sizes and return the ones that don't fit. Happy Cruising!
