you tubed chine walk and thats the boyo allright!

I can live with it (as only happend when flatout) but might as well see what can reduce it. Am I right in thinking the two improvers are:-

- raise engine height to reduce the prop lifting the hull out of the water
- weight in the bow to make it more level to increase wetted area

Not sure how trimming up would improve as some posts here seem to suggest, got much worse when I trimmed up which if I am correct would lift the bows a bit reducing the wetted area?

Boat off the water for the next month or so to get all shiny for the summer and fit jockey seats and a frame etc. So can do a few mods such as engine height etc.
