My trimtab moves the rudder from side to side, the rudder is left free. There is no way you could get enough power in the trim tab alone, to steer the boat in rough conditions. I don't know why you'd want to, given the power and simplicity of using the trimtab to steer the rudder. Airplane folks can explain the principle .
