I still have my 4.8 mtr. rib (mostro, see www.mostro.gr.
) which suffered from chine walking. I got some good advices, and I am working on things like a fuel tank in the bottom/front, and moving the steering console and battery more to the front(thanks for that, Pete 7, scubakid, Charles and Keith! ). I lately read that trim tabs help to overcome chine walking, and give better steering performance and more stability.
Can anybody tell me if they really make a difference, and which trim tabs are the best?
As far as I know there are electric/hydraulic trim tabs, but also completely automatic ones with nitogen gas actuators, which I would prefer since there will be no cables and/or wires to maintain.
