You can get through the chine walking on an Avon, it just takes a bit of belief and feel for the boat.

I need a little bit of Rhythym and a little bit of Blues

Engine weight should not be a problem a 60hp 4 stroke mariner weighs the same as a 50hp and only 321b more than the 40hp.

You dont have to use it flat out, go as fast as you feel safe.

Thanks Phil, but an easier method would have been to put your massively oversized anchor in the boat to slow it down Did you pinch it from QE2.
